This book was not very good. It's set up to be a catalog of numbers, with interesting information about the various numbers. The problem is that most of the information is pretty dull. Some of the information is interesting, but only briefly mentioned, and those topics would be better encountered in a context that gave them fair treatment. Also, some of the points made in the book are actually incorrect.

BRYAN BUNCH got his B.A. in English (more writing than literature) and taught high-school English and wrote poetry for a year after graduation, then started work in New York publishing as a copyeditor.
