"Clear, concise and accessible. And he leavens it further with occasional wry humor."--St Louis Post-Dispatch
"Provocative and informed ... plenty of comprehensible analogies and no small amount of humor, often self-deprecating.... Best of all, the book is liberally sprinkled with well-conceived, gorgeously rendered and frequently whimsical illustrations."--Time
