"Flatland" fueled my interest in mathematics and creative thinking when I was a child. Now this classic story has been reinterpreted as a gloriously vivid movie that will excite both children and adults. This book completes the movie experience by providing the original book, the screenplay of the movie, and comments by the filmmakers. -- Scott Kim "Discover Magazine" --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
From the Inside Flap
""Flatland" has and always will be a fun and fascinating journey, showing us again how the world of mathematics can expand the mind and take the imagination to places where it didn't know it could play."--Danica McKellar, actress and author of the best-selling "Math Doesn't Suck"
"A fascinating look behind the scenes of the best "Flatland" movie yet. Long live A Square!"--Rudy Rucker, author of "The Fourth Dimension" --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.See all Product description

The book I've received is below any possible expectations you could think of, I don't think it can even be called a book. The cover consists of a Word-art-style text and a picture so enlarged you could count the pixels. Inside, the book is badly formatted and looks like a copy-paste from somewhere else. "Printed by Amazon" tells you all.
Do yourself a favour and get a better edition.
It had me thinking for weeks.
On the one level this is a cool and very amusing exposee of dimensionality. But on another far more fascinating level, it is a brilliant critique of humanity - of society and its norms and rules. How ridiculous our behaviour must look to beings eyeing us from a 4th dimension!
This book is not just intelligent, it is also funny!
