  1. Lets get the obvious out of the way. This is a math book. Still here? Good. This is a math book by among others John Conway. You know, the creator of the Game of Life. I actually ran into the book through Chaim Goodman-Strauss, who has a wonderful podcast called Math Factor. Well worth your time if you are into recreational mathematics (and if you weren’t, you probably would have stopped reading once I expected you to know who John Conway is). I’m afraid I don’t know anything about Heidi Burgie

  2. Thoroughly enjoyed the first portion of this book. From there I understood progressively less (as the authors warned), but it was still fun to see what I could pick up as I went along. And of course, the illustrations were both beautiful and a fantastic aid to understanding.
