Review:

Martin Gardner has a knack for wondering about everything. From Alice in Wonderland to supply-side economics, Gardner has spent a lifetime discovering, pondering, and explaining ideas. His essays, most of which appeared in Scientific American and The New York Review of Books, often tackles the big issues--is there a God?--in a language the rest of us can digest. He has the eye to recognize what most people don't and the voice to articulate what many of us can't.

About the Author:

Martin Gardner, born in 1914, is a regular reviewer for The New York Review of Books and was a Scientific American columnist for over twenty-five years. He lives in Hendersonville, North Carolina.
