Review

Praise for The Cabinet of Mathematical Curiosities:

'Stewart has a genius for explanation ... Find a comfortable chair for some holiday puzzling: mathematics doesn't come more entertaining than this.

(New Scientist)

Stewart has served up the instructive equivalent of a Michelin-starred tasting menu (Guardian)

His wondrous world of worked-out maths and joined-up thinking is radical and even romantic (Ian Finlayson Times)

Interesting and authoritative (BBC Focus)

Book Description

A unique history of humanity told through its seventeen defining equations; from Pythagoras to Calculus.
