The Mathematics Devotional

I just received Cliff Pickover's new book, 'The Mathematics Devotional.' You may know Cliff from his website RealityCarnival. The subtitle of the book is 'Celebrating the Wisdom and Beauty of Mathematics.'

The books reads like a calendar. For every day of the year there's a beautiful image alongside a quote from the world's most brilliant people, the likes of Bertrand Russell, Albert Einstein, Pythagoras, Stephen Hawking and Isaac Newton to name just a few.

The Mathematics Devotional is not only about science. It shows the beauty of mathematics, it's poetry and it's also a source of inspiration.
