Reviews

"Sure to be a hit for the math geek in your life."--GeekDad.com

"This is by far the most entertaining math book I've seen in a long time. Want to show someone what math is about? Tell them to forget everything they've read. Then, hand them this book and a box of 100 crayons, and leave them alone for an hour. There's no way you'll get your copy back. Amazing!"
--Adrián Paenza, bestselling math author and winner of the International Congress of Mathematicians' Leelavati Award

"My six-year-old and I are both loving the mathy new coloring book Visions of the Universe."

"Beautiful . . . Alex and Edmund have smuggled some of the best mathematical stories into this visual feast. By engaging the reader in their journey, the authors show how mathematics isn't a spectator sport. Math comes alive when you make it yourself."
