Ian Stewart explores the astonishing properties of numbers from zero to infinity, marvels at the insights of the ancient mathematicians, and shows how numbers evolve through time. Under his expert guidance you'll discover the mathematical secrets of codes, sudoku, Rubik's cube and musical scales and how one kind of infinity can be greater than another. You'll also discover you live in eleven-dimensional space. Professor Stewart's Incredible Numbers will delight everyone who loves numbers - along with many who currently think they don't."
