Intriguing ... a challenging but rewarding trip through a quantum world of uncertainties. * Publisher's Weekly * Praise for Ian Stewart: Stewart is Britain's most brilliant and prolific populariser of maths -- Alex Belos This is not pure maths. It is maths contaminated with wit, wisdom, and wonder ... He guides us on a mind-boggling journey from the ultra trivial to the profound. Thoroughly entertaining * New Scientist * Humbling and inspiring. Stewart shows with his typical clarity how the power of pure thought has shaped our world for over two millennia. -- Jim Al-Khalili, FRS This is a superb Cabinet of Mathematical Curiosities that deserves a place with the classics of the genre * Mathematics Today * 'With captivating stories and his signature clarity, Ian Stewart shows us how math makes the world - and the rest of the universe - go round. -- Steven Strogatz, Professor of Mathematics, Cornell University, and author of The Joy of X 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 *
