really liked it
bookshelves: geekature, recommendedby-a, math-numbers, art, science
Read from December 11 to 17, 2011

A discussion of the mathematics/discoveries of infinity, and how the concept of infinity has affected religion, art, music, and science. Being me, I especially found the math and art portions interesting, especially because there are a whole lot of references (and even a chapter) to M.C. Escher.

A high enough 3 stars that I gave it 4 stars, although it might have really been more like 3.75 stars.
