Booklist Review

Stewart synopsizes the history of mathematics from Galileo to Einstein in a light and witty style while he explains the mathematical concept of chaos. The subject is complex and difficult to comprehend through conventional mathematics, so most topics are introduced through examples from music, science, space travel, and even homelier disciplines. Thus, difficult and elusive mathematical concepts are made fascinating, even easy to grasp. List of further readings; to be indexed. --George Hampton
