Review

Everything and More is, in nearly every way, a gift. It’s a thoughtful and witty 300-page testimonial to the qualities I never fully understood that mathematics possessed: Math is astonishing and full of ‘shadowlands,’ and—ultimately—stunning beauty. —Anthony Doerr, Boston Globe

[Wallace] brings to his task a refreshingly conversational style as well as a surprisingly authoritative command of mathematics…A success.—John Allen Paulos, American Scholar

Wallace is the perfect parachute buddy for a free fall into the mathematical and metaphysical abyss that is infinity.—Dennis Lim, Village Voice

All the grace of pure mathematics without the parts that make me want to bang my head against the wall.—Daniel Handler, Newsday

Shockingly readable…a brilliant antidote both to boring math textbooks and to pop-culture math books that emphasize the discoverer over the discovery.—Booklist (starred review) --This text refers to the paperback edition.
