Product Description
Review
`Review from previous edition 'Succeed[s] in bringing to the fore an aspect of mathematics that some popularizers miss  that math is not a science of monuments, but a living tradition as vibrant as physics or ethics or law, one in which new monuments pop up weekly... ...And readers of [Symmetry and the Monster] will know, at least in part, where it's happening now, and even (maybe) where it's going to happen next.'' iSeed Magazine/i Jun/Jul 2006
a fascinating book that will appeal to anyone with an appetite for exploration and discovery, and which is accessble to all.
