"This is a truly fascinating story which ... provides an insight into the life of an outstanding scientific writer."

—J. Usher, Mathematics Today

"If I ever were stranded in an airport, bored silly and searching for someone to talk to, I think I'd like Phillip J. Davis to be stranded with me... Davis appears to have no artifice. His book is a compendium of several tales that caught his interest. It's also a book that, often subtly, reveals the sort of mathematical lore that keeps mathematicians talking as they gather for afternoon tea in universities throughout the country."

—SIAM Review
