Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book is the companion piece to a 2007 animated movie, but whether you see the movie or not, the book is a must-read. If you've never thought much about why we inhabit only three dimensions, it may turn your world inside out."--Laurence A. Marschall, Natural History

"Flatland fueled my interest in mathematics and creative thinking when I was a child. Now this classic story has been reinterpreted as a gloriously vivid movie that will excite both children and adults. This book completes the movie experience by providing the original book, the screenplay of the movie, and comments by the filmmakers."--Scott Kim, Discover Magazine

"Flatland has inspired many sequels over the years since its publication, but the epithet 'original and best' strikes me as apt. Abbott displays marvelously playful inventiveness and sharp satirical intent. . . . It remains a splendidly readable book for formative minds of all ages."--Nick Lord, Mathematical Gazette

"The ultimate edition of the classic book."--The Providence Journal

"Edwin Abbott's 1884 classic is billed here as a mathematical story, designed to stimulate young imaginations. But the tale of a two-dimensional 'Flatland' and a visiting sphere, who introduces the Gospel of the Three Dimensions, is also a timeless satire on class privilege. A delightful piece of science fiction, it explores how a 2D world might actually work. The book is nicely presented, and includes the full text of the original novel, the screenplay for the forthcoming film, commentaries from the filmmakers and stunning colour art taken from the film."--New Scientist

"This new edition of the classic book maintains all the appeal of the original well-read and well-loved version."--Mathematics Teacher

"I thoroughly recommend this book and movie to those readers and viewers of all ages who like a little romance, mixed with adventure and drama and fantastic color animation."--Rob Harle, Leonardo

From the Inside Flap

"Flatland has and always will be a fun and fascinating journey, showing us again how the world of mathematics can expand the mind and take the imagination to places where it didn't know it could play."--Danica McKellar, actress and author of the best-selling Math Doesn't Suck

"A fascinating look behind the scenes of the best Flatland movie yet. Long live A Square!"--Rudy Rucker, author of The Fourth Dimension

This version of the book has all the original text by Edwin A. Abbott and some really cool graphics from the movie. There are two versions of the movie, the version with Martin Sheen is far better.

I thought I was ordering the movie. But it was a book about the movie. I like books but not this one.
