Reviews

"It is candy for the intellectually curious."
--Leonard Mlodinow, bestselling author of The Drunkard's Walk "David Berlinski plus any topic equals an extraordinary book. . . . Making simple and accessible that which had previously been murky and intimidating is Berlinski's specialty."
--Chicago Tribune "A writer who takes immense pleasure in [his subject] and tries to create it in others."
--The New York Times Book Review "With broad culture and wry humor, Berlinski takes a look at some basic concepts in math and the people who worried about them. A treat!"
--Gregory Chaitin, author of Meta Math! "He is both poet and genius. And he's funny . . . The writing is clean and powerful . . . Go, Berlinski, go."
--San Francisco Chronicle "Remarkable. . . . Using simple speech--and a flare for literary wordplay--Berlinski spells out historically necessary numerical notions for the public."
--Sacramento Book Review "Berlinski releases math from its textbook script and restores its majestic drama."
--Booklist "A tour de force by a mathematician who wants the intellectually curious and logically minded . . . to understand the foundations and beauty of one of the major branches of mathematics."
--Kirkus Reviews

"A logician, professor, novelist, and accomplished writer, Berlinski revels in riffs, employing a jazzy style."
--National Review "With wit and philosophy, with the clash of symbols and history, Berlinski displays the inner soul of simple arithmetic."
--Philip J. Davis, professor emeritus of applied mathematics, Brown University "For mathematically challenged folk like me, David Berlinski . . . renders mathematics not easy, but accessible and absorbing. . . . You'll enjoy yourself."
-Paul McHugh, Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, Johns Hopkins University
