The Man Who Counted

Article number: 987609
Availability: In stock (4)

The Man Who Counted is a series of delightful "Arabian nights"-style tales, with each story built around a classic mathematical puzzle.  The puzzles fit into the stories so naturally that they are a necessary part of the fantasy.  The hero is a Persian mathematician and mystic named Beremiz who uses his powers of calculation like a magic wand to amaze and entertain people, settle disputes, find justice and, finally, win the heart of a beautiful princess.  Reading the stories is as much fun as trying to solve the puzzles.
