Britain's most brilliant and prolific populariser of mathematics (Alex Bellos Guardian)

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. Thoroughly entertaining (Jeremy Webb New Scientist)

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)

Anyone with a slight geeky bent to them, whether they be adult or teenager, will find plenty to edify, tickle and tantalise them. It'd make a wonderful present ... I can't wait for the next volume. Highly recommended (Bookbag)

Book Description
