In this book of mathematical stories, the well-known and highly esteemed author provides a surprisingly entertaining tour of unfamiliar territory. He describes stories about numbers, problems, people who do math, and the places where mathematical discoveries are made (such as des...ks, libraries, beds, and churches).
