A brilliant exploration of the beauty and power of mathematics Ian Stewart has carved out of a niche for himself as by far the leading populariser of maths in this country in a series of successful books. The Magical Maze is structured on the image of a maze representing the network of connected mathematical ideas that have proved sopowerful and effective in the understanding the natural world. Expanding from Stewart's 1997 Royal Institution Christmas lecture, it covers topics such as numbers, probablity, game theory, patterns and oscillators, as well as knots, computability, chaos and other topics chosen to communicate the intellectual excitement and beauty of mathematics as a subject.

Stewart is the best living writer on mathematics for the lay person, and the Royal Institution Christmas lectures are the best platform for putting scientific ideas across to young people. Add the two together, and you have The Magical Maze, the book of Stewart's 1997 RI Christmas lectures. This is one of the very best introductions to what modern mathematics (games theory, probability, chaos and the rest) is all about. (Kirkus UK)
