  • 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
  • I was hooked. . . what is delightful about the book is the vivid clarity

    Tim Harford
  • 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?
  • One of those wonderful books you'll want to tell everyone about

    Ananyo Bhattacharya, author of The Man from the Future
  • 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
