As he did in The Physics Devotional, Clifford Pickover provides every page of this daily mathematical almanac with a sage remark or insight, from such thinkers as Pythagoras, Richard Feynman, Bertrand Russell, Daniel Dennett, Srinivasa Ramanujan, Paul Erdos, and Robert Heinlein. Pickover is also known for visualizing abstract principles, so each entry is accompanied by a striking color illustration, from gorgeous fractals to splendid architecture. The birthdays of notable mathematicians are listed, and the book includes a brief biographical dictionary of those quoted.
