"Very scrupulously set out. It is extremely well written and beautifully literate." -Dr. Diané Collinson, author of Plain English, Fifty Major Philosophers, Fifty Eastern Thinkers, coauthor of works including the Biographical Dictionary of Twentieth-Century Philosophers
"A provocative book by a serious thinker, well worth the reader's time." -William A. Haviland, PhD, professor emeritus and founder of the Department of Anthropology at the University of Vermont, coauthor of textbooks including Cultural Anthropology and Evolution and Prehistory
"Unicycle is an important book. I am very impressed. It covers a lot of territory, and it is very thoughtful and even charming. The math and logic are understandable to the interdisciplinary reader. I agreed with everything the book has to say." -Esther Pasztory, PhD, Lisa and Bernard Selz Professor Emeritus in Pre-Columbian Art History and Archaeology, Columbia University, author of Thinking with Things, Aztec Art, and Teotihuacan: An Experiment in Living
"This book contains some serious mathematics - smart, thought-provoking, and engrossing." -William H. Barker, PhD, Isaac Henry Wing Professor of Mathematics, Bowdoin College, coauthor of the textbook Continuous Symmetry: From Euclid to Klein
"An eloquent explanation, with spare logic and excellent argument. In my critical thinking class, my students study the core ideals of the Enlightenment; this book's world view gives me a position from which to triangulate between absolutism and relativism and illuminates all three." -David S. Cook, MA, author of Above the Gravel Bar: The Native Canoe Routes of Maine and History of the 3rd Maine Infantry Regiment
