"Very scrupulously set out. It is extremely well written and beautifully literate." - Dr. Diané Collinson, author of Plain English, Fifty Major Philosophers, Fifty Eastern Thinkers, coauthor of the Biographical Dictionary of Twentieth-Century Philosophers

"This book contains some serious mathematics - smart, thought-provoking, and engrossing." - William H. Barker, PhD, professor of mathematics, Bowdoin College, coauthor of the textbook Continuous Symmetry: From Euclid to Klein

"A provocative book by a serious thinker, well worth the reader's time. We are essentially on the same page." - William A. Haviland, PhD, professor emeritus and founder of the Department of Anthropology, University of Vermont, coauthor of bestselling textbooks, including Cultural Anthropology and Evolution and Prehistory

"Looks fascinating." - Daniel C. Dennett, PhD, professor of philosophy, co-director of the Center for Cognitive Studies, Tufts University, bestselling author of books including Darwin's Dangerous Idea and From Bacteria to Bach and Back: The Evolution of Minds

"Unicycle is an important book. I am very impressed. It covers a lot of territory, and it is very thoughtful and even charming. The math and logic are understandable to the interdisciplinary reader. I agreed with everything the book has to say." - Esther Pasztory, PhD, professor emerita, Columbia University, author of groundbreaking books, including Thinking With Things, Aztec Art, Teotihuacan: An Experiment in Living

"An eloquent explanation, with spare logic and excellent argument. In my critical thinking class, my students study the core ideals of the Enlightenment; this book's world view gives me a position from which to triangulate between absolutism and relativism and illuminates all three." - David S. Cook, author of Above the Gravel Bar: The Native Canoe Routes of Maine and Into the Civil War With the 3rd Maine Infantry Regiment (Upcoming in 2023)
