Product description

Review

'Generations of readers, both in and out of mathematics, have read Apology as one of the most eloquent descriptions in our language of the pleasure and power of mathematical invention.' The New Yorker

'Great mathematicians rarely write about themselves or about their work, and few of them would have the literary gift to compose an essay of such charm, candour and insight … a manifesto for mathematics itself.' The Guardian

'Hardy's book is carefully reasoned, beautifully written and very stimulating; … it can profitably be read by anyone.' New Scientist

'A beautiful book written by a leading mathematician of the time.' BBC Focus --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
