Reviews

'I think all mathematicians should own this book ... there are sections where the author conveys admirably his excitement over some unexpected and beautiful sequence of ideas. I pay the author the earnest compliment of stating that nearly every page in the book is an adventure ...'. The Mathematical Intelligencer '... very accessible ... The author's clear and engaging style makes the book a pleasure to read ...'. MAA Online 'This is a very useful book ... should be in each mathematical library.' Monatshefte fur Mathematik 'This is a very useful book ... The emphasis is on the mathematical origin of the constants and their interrelationships. The aim is always to be clear and complete, to motivate why a particular constant or idea is important, and to indicate exactly where in the literature one should look for rigorous proofs and further elaboration. This book should be in each mathematical library.' Internationale Mathematische Nachrichten 'Enormous fun, and you don't even have to follow any difficult arguments; a treasure-trove for the mathematical beachcomber.' The Mathematical Gazette 'This is a very useful book. The aim is always to be clear and complete, to motivate why a particular constant of idea is important, and to indicate exactly where in the literature one should look for rigorous proofs and further elaboration. This book should be in each mathematical library.' Internationale Mathematische Nachrichten 'The book is very useful and interesting for all mathematicians looking for information about a lot of specific constants, because it brings together all significant mathematical constants in one place.' Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum
