The Grapes Of Math
Today The Grapes Of Math by Alex Bellos is published in the USA by Simon & Schuster. Here's one of the illustrations by The Surreal McCoy.
“Bellos’s book is sprinkled with similarly surprising revelations about familiar mathematical objects ... Bellos has a fantastic knack of making you feel as if you’re sharing a room with these mathematical explorers” – New Scientist
"Another sparkling romp through the world of numbers, with the inimitable Alex Bellos as your friendly, informed, and crystal-clear guide. A brilliant successor to Here's Looking at Euclid."
– Ian Stewart, Professor of Mathematics, University of Warwick, and author of Visions of Infinity
