Professor Ian Stewart


Praise for Ian Stewart: ‘Humbling and inspiring. Stewart shows with his typical clarity how the power of pure thought has shaped our world for over two millennia — Jim Al-Khalili ― FRS


This is not pure maths. It is maths contaminated with wit, wisdom, and wonder … A mind-boggling journey from the ultra trivial to the profound ― New Scientist


Captivating … Ian Stewart shows us how math makes the world – and the rest of the universe – go round — Steven Strogatz, Professor of Mathematics, Cornell University


Stewart has served up the instructive equivalent of a Michelin-starred tasting menu — Tim Radford ― Guardian


Richly informative [and] revealing … If you believe mathematics offers little of practical use, Stewart is back to show you the error of your ways ― Kirkus


This is a superb Cabinet of Mathematical Curiosities that deserves a place with the classics of the genre. ― Mathematics Today
