It is not all math and numerology. Gardner writes about his romance with Dr. Matrix's eurasian daughter to keep people with short atttention span engaged.
The main topic of this book is numberology and Dr. Matrix is a "fly by night" hero of the work.
Gardner sort of singlehandedly gives numerology a stink it may never live down. The human trait of trying to see "patterns" in the world around them
is carried to an obsession that is sociopathic that includes cabala and Mysticism.
I would have given it a two star, but there are still vestiges of the old Gardner in the points on a sphere polygons toward the end.
This book will make me look at all the Gardner books with a different eye.
