'Demaine and O'Rourke are among the best-qualified authors for a book on this subject; and the book that they have written is a delight … it is exceptionally clear and readable. It could be read for pleasure by any mathematics undergraduate, and much of it (though not all) by amateurs with a high school mathematics background … although there are sections that some amateurs will skip, the level is always kept as elementary as locally possible. This book should be in all university libraries, and many professional and amateur mathematicians will want to add it to their personal collections.' Robert Dawson (Halifax), Zentralblatt Math
'This book is one of those rare mathematics books that I had a hard time putting down. I wanted to keep reading to find the next insight. … This is a serious mathematics book whose explorations have significant applications and real mathematical profundity, wonderfully mixed with some fun recreational mathematics. … The book has a useful index and an extensive bibliography, so when you finish reading, it will remain a valuable resource far into the future. There is a lot of material in this book and it is really a lot of fun. I highly, highly recommend this book to anyone with even a passing interest in folding mathematics.' MAA Reviews
'The authors explain step-by-step interesting solutions of some folding problems. This splendidly illustrated book can be interesting for advanced undergraduate students in mathematics and computer science as well as for geometers and computer specialists who can find many new ideas and impulses …' EMS Newsletter
Emphasizing algorithmic and computational aspects, this fascinating treatment of the geometry of folding and unfolding presents hundreds of results and over 60 open problems. Aimed at advanced undergraduates and graduates in mathematics or computer science, this lavishly illustrated book will entertain a broad audience, from school students to researchers.
