Book Description

Each chapter in this Gardner collection explores a different theme; for example fractals, surreal numbers, the sculptures of Berrocal, tiling the plane and code breaking. Gardner's clarity of style and ability to explain make this an excellent vehicle in which to start or continue an interest in recreational mathematics.
