Description
"Cartographer for the land of numbers, [Andrew] Hodges here maps out an exhilarating journey, converting the simple trip from one to nine into an excursion through enchanting territory, pausing at lookout points commanding stunning intellectual vistas.... Two, for instance, opens up the mystery of symmetry—and the conundrum of symmetry-defying time. Five illuminates the quasicrystals that have revolutionized solid-state physics. And eight exposes the workings of byte-based computer logic. Regardless of the number in view, Hodges writes with wonderful lucidity, inviting general readers to share in treasures too often surrendered entirely to specialists."—Booklist
