Product description

From the Inside Flap

This sharply intelligent, consistently provocative book takes the reader on an astonishing, thought-provoking voyage into the realm of delightful uncertainty--a world of paradox in which logical argument leads to contradiction and common sense is seemingly rendered irrelevant.

He is the author of The Recursive Universe, about information theory and physics, and Labyrinths of Reason, an exploration of paradox in science. The author of such popular books as Big SecretsThe Ultimate, and Prisoner’s Dilemma, he has also written for EsquireHarper’s MagazineSPY, and other periodicals. Poundstone lives in Los Angeles.
