About the book:

A profusely illustrated, bemusingly unorthodox introduction to math.Booklist

From there, the authors leapfrog over math and anecdote toward profound ideas about nature, art, and music. Coincidences is a book for lovers of puzzles and posers of outlandish questions, lapsed math aficionados and the formula-phobic alike.
