Editorial Reviews


Things to Make and Do in the Fourth Dimension shows off math at its most playful and multifarious, ranging from classics like knot theory and ruler-and-compass constructions to more whimsical topics like the topology of beer logos and error-correcting scarves.” —Jordan Ellenberg, author of How to Not Be Wrong
“Matt Parker is some sort of unholy fusion of a prankster, wizard and brilliant nerd—maths is rarely this clever, funny and ever so slightly naughty.” —Adam Rutherford, author of Creation
“This is the best book on recreational mathematics since Martin Gardner's My Best Mathematical and Logic Puzzles.” —Library Journal

Format: Hardcover
Great read for anyone interested in maths, especially a bit more 'popular' version :) And if you're not interested yet, this might be exactly what pushes you over the brink ...
