This is a superb Cabinet of Mathematical Curiosities that deserves a place with the classics of the genre. * Mathematics today * The book's goofy and unabashed enthusiasm will charm any interested teenager * Daily Telegraph * interesting and illuminating... * BBC Focus * Stewart has a genius for explanation ... Find a comfortable chair for some holiday puzzling: mathematics doesn't come more entertaining than this. * New Scientist * A dizzying new book -- Tim Radford * Guardian * There is plenty here for the curious newcomer to enjoy -- Dr Martin Homer * BBC Focus Magazine * You don't need to be a maths guru . . . to enjoy his 'curiosities' * Good Book Guide * This is not pure maths. It is maths contaminated with whit, wisdom, and wonder.Ian really is unsurpassed as raconteur of the world of numbers. He guides us on a mind-boggling journey from the ultra trivial to the profound. Thoroughly entertaining. -- Jeremy Webb * New Scientist * 'Stewart has served up the instructive equivalent of a Michelin-starred tasting menu, or perhaps a smorgasbord of appetisers. And of course, appetisers are designed to give you an appetite for more.' -- Tim Radford * Guardian *
