Fascinating stuff and has something to interest everyone -- whether you want fun facts, an explanation of theorems, or a few puzzles. In numerical order, has something about every number from 1 to 200 and nothing about zero..

Should read this book in small doses otherwise the mathematics can be overwhelming. A neat, fact-filled book

4 is the only number in the English Language that contains the same number of letters as its name. But there's more going on here. Choose any number whatsoever and count the number of letters in its name to get a new number. Count the number of letters in the new number, and keep going. No matter what number you started with, you'll eventually end up with four. The proof is actually a little easier than you might think. Care to take a stab at it?
