The book of numbers

John H. Conway, Richard K. Guy

"...the great feature of the book is that anyone can read it without excessive head scratching...You'll find plenty here to keep you occupied, amused, and informed. Buy, dip in, wallow". (Ian Stewart, "New Scientist"). "...a delightful look at numbers and their roles in everything from language to flowers to the imagination". ("Science News"). "...a fun and fascinating tour of numerical topics and concepts. It will have readers contemplating ideas they might never have thought were understandable or even possible". ("Wisconsin Bookwatch"). "This popularization of number theory looks like another classic." ("Library Journal").
