Berlinski has composed energetic, intertwined tales that make it nearly impossible for readers, once drawn in, to lose interest. . . . An uncommon achievement of both style and substance.-Publishers Weekly (starred review) A tour de force, this book gives intellectual dilemmas a human face, while restoring grandeur and mystery to a universe still too richly intricate to fit within a computer protocol.-Booklist (starred review) An extraordinary book . . . Making simple and accessible that which had previously been murky and intimidating is Berlinski's specialty.-Chicago Tribune
