A Mathematical Mystery Tour: Discovering the Truth and Beauty of the Cosmos by A. K. Dewdney

A fictional journey around the world in search of the solution to one of the greatest ancient mysteries of mathematics . . . A Mathematical Mystery Tour Dewdney spins an absorbing narrative . . . an amenable introduction to a difficult subject.-Publishers Weekly A Mathematical Mystery Tour is not a difficult read, although the ideas it attempts to clarify are quite abstract. The fictional tour guides at each port of call are helpful in humanizing the intimidating subject matter.-Amazon.com Praise for the works of A. K. Dewdney Yes, We Have No Neutrons We need more books like this-especially if theyre this much fun to read.-Wired Written with wit and a touch of pathos-and sure to please science lovers.-Publishers Weekly A useful and easily read introduction to bad science.-Scientific American 200% of Nothing It is impossible to read this timely, important book without enjoyment and eye-opening enlightenment.-Martin Gardner Dewdneys approach is similar to John Allen Pauloss Innumeracy, but delightfully more witty.-Library Journal
