Book Description:

'Another excellent book for the lay reader of mathematics . . . In explaining infinity , the author introduces the reader to a good many other mathematical terms and concepts that seem unintelligible in a formal text but are much less formidable when presented in the author's individual and very readable style.' Library Journal

'The interpolations tying mathematics into human life and thought are brilliantly clear.' Booklist

'Mrs. Lieber, in this text illustrated by her husband, Hugh Gray Lieber, has tackled the formidable task of explaining infinity in simple terms, in short line, short sentence technique popularized by her in The Education of T.C. MITS.' Chicago Sunday Tribune

Infinity, another delightful mathematics book from the creators of The Education of T.C. MITS, offers an entertaining, yet thorough, explanation of the concept of, yes, infinity. Accessible to non mathematicians, this book also cleverly connects mathematical reasoning to larger issues in society. The new foreword by Harvard mathematics professor Barry Mazur is a tribute to the Liebers' influence on generations of mathematicians.

Lillian Lieber was a professor and head of the Department of Mathematics at Long Island University. She wrote a series of light hearted (and well respected) math books, many of them illustrated by her husband.

Barry Mazur is the Gerhard Gade University Professor of Mathematics at Harvard University and is the author of Imagining Numbers.
