KIRKUS REVIEW

For the Hogben fans and all those brainy people who love to get themselves extricably wound up in numbers, this includes mathematical tricks with match sticks and billiards, odd facts about the binary system, fancy counting systems and the mathematical or just plain ""easy"" way of doing things. Witty and serious, these are pleasant insights into the queen of sciences.
