This lively and comprehensive new survey sets out to show just how mistaken people who think they can't enjoy mathematics really are. Dr. Devlin's television appearances and popular GUARDIAN column have revealed his remarkable gift for making difficult topics beautifully accessible. In this book he offers a glimpse of the extraordinary vistas and bizarre universes opened up by contemporary mathematics.
