Description

Welcome back to Ian Stewart's magical world of mathematics! This is a strange world of never-ending chess games, empires on the moon, furious fireflies, and, of course, disputes over how best to cut a cake. Each quirky tale presents a fascinating mathematical puzzle - challenging, fun, and also introducing the reader to a significant mathematical problem in an engaging and witty way.
