  1. Hi Richard!
    How does your new book compare to Ian Stewart’s recent book “In Pursuit of the Unknown” which also chronicles how Maths is used in the real world?

  2. Hello John!
    Perhaps someone neutral who has read both books is better placed to answer that question… I have read and enjoyed several of Ian’s books, but not yet that one.

  3. Dear Richard,

    Congratulations on your new book. It appeared this week in Buenos Aires (Argentina) and I bought it yesterday.
    I always thought that the quotation “A mathematician is a device for turning coffee into theorems” belonged to Paul Erdos, but in “Chaotic…” it is attributed to the great Alfred Renyi. So I checked it in the web and apparently it is not clear who was the author.
    Do you have more information about this?
    Best regards,
