There are jokes, puns, hints on code-breaking and a dollop of the unexpected. You won't have learned any of this in school but if you have a mathematical bent and a logical mind you will soon be teasing out the answers. * Good Book Guide *
An ideal present for anyone addicted to Sudoku-like puzzles and beginning to wonder what might lie beyond * Spectator *
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. -- Jeremy Webb * New Scientist *
A perfect gift for a clever child * Daily Telegraph *
As the professor darts randomly from 'digital cubes' to 'the hairy ball theorem' with boundless playful curiosity, even those with only a sluggish interest in maths will find something to amuse and amaze * Sunday Telegraph *
