  • Genius: an entire book about mathematics in which the only digits are the page numbers. . . fresh, delightful and extremely accessible

    Alex Bellos, Guardian
  • Beckman's book is not only fascinating and enthralling but also one I actually kept my eyes open long enough to finish (in part because - and this is a massively underrated virtue in popular science books - it is short)

    Tom Whipple, The Times
  • This guide to the maths we didn't get taught at school is full of fascinating revelations

    Manjit Kumar, The Times
  • A cheerful, chatty, and charming trip through the world of mathematics and its relation to the world of people - and not a number in sight! Everyone should read this delightful book. Even mathematicians

    Ian Stewart, author of Do Dice Play God?
  • So delightful! Mathematics is playful, surprising, and enchanting, but those qualities are often obscured behind intimidating equations and formalism. Milo Beckman brings them out into the open for everyone to share.

    Sean Carroll, author of Something Deeply Hidden
  • With charm, unwavering enthusiasm, and a lot of cartoons, Math Without Numbers waltzes the reader through a garden of higher mathematics

    Jordan Ellenberg, author of How Not To Be Wrong
  • Math Without Numbers explores deep mathematical topics -- and shows how mathematicians think-in completely readable prose. The puzzles and games are bonuses. Very enjoyable

    Will Shortz, crossword editor, The New York Times
  • A playful paean to the pleasures of studying higher math ... readers with an abundance of curiosity and the time to puzzle over Beckman's many examples, riddles, and questions, will make many fascinating discoveries

    Publishers Weekly
  • The book's accessible language and illustrations makes understanding some of the most complex (and possibly most intimidating) math concepts feel as effortless as breathing. Beckman's approachable writing and Erazo's delightful illustration combine to tell an insightful and entertaining story about math

    Giorgia Lupi and Stefanie Posavec, co-authors of Dear Data
  • This is the book for you if you've ever been curious about the wonderful ideas and concepts underlying modern math, but been too frightened to make a start. Milo Beckman gives us a friendly introduction to unfamiliar concepts and ideas that show why modern math is such a fascinating and rewarding branch of human thought

    Graham Farmelo, author of The Universe Speaks in Numbers
