3.0 out of 5 stars Fun but leaves you wanting more 15 Oct 1998
By puffinswan - Published on
A fun introduction to numbers and their myriad uses. It is really just an overview of concepts, applications and puzzles concerning numbers. It left me wanting much more but not knowing where to go. Still it was a fun read.
