A short guide to the boundless, timeless and endless

THE INFINITE BOOK

Everything you might want to know about infinity by one of Britain’s most distinguished scientists, and most successful writers of popular science. The Infinite Book explores all the questions, imponderable and otherwise, that the idea of infinity contains, through a history of the great minds occupied with it. Here, in a delightful mix of the serious and playful, we encounter the great thinkers of history from Aristotle to Zeno (with a little Woody Allen and Basil Fawlty thrown in for good measure) grappling with the infinite. John Barrow’s excursions into literature, philosophy and history give this book the broadest possible appeal.
