An extraordinary book..., 10 Nov 2011
I opened this book expecting to find a history of pasta and an explanation of the various types. What it actually does is something remarkably novel - it provides you with the mathematical equations required to construct each of 92 types of pasta, along with a very satisfying demonstration. It's a perfect present for my Godson who is very keen on maths, but I'm getting one for myself as well, because it's the perfect coffee table read; original, beautiful, intriguing and a completely new way of looking at the everyday.
