Reviews

"Things to Make and Do in the Fourth Dimension shows off math at its most playful and multifarious, ranging from classics like knot theory and ruler-and-compass constructions to more whimsical topics like the topology of beer logos and error-correcting scarves." --Jordan Ellenberg, author of How to Not Be Wrong

"Matt Parker is some sort of unholy fusion of a prankster, wizard and brilliant nerd--maths is rarely this clever, funny and ever so slightly naughty." --Adam Rutherford, author of Creation

"This is the best book on recreational mathematics since Martin Gardner's My Best Mathematical and Logic Puzzles." --Library Journal
