- Discovery Trip into a Cryptic Science
- A surprising and fascinating portrait, in which mathematics is explained in an accessible and entertaining way


No one has ever let us into the secrets of this underestimated science like this before. In thirteen chapters, demonstrating surprising findings, Armin Barth, gifted didact, shows us why mathematics exists, how to approach it and why there is no room in the world for ugly maths. The book is beautifully illustrated by Helmut Brades’ 206 pen and ink drawings, which allow us to perceptibly comprehend the mathematical findings made by Gauß and other mathematicians. Text and images encourage the reader to enter the world of numbers. This is not a scientific book. It is a means of access for laypeople that highlights the element of beauty that is inherent to mathematics.


Armin P. Barth
born in 1962, is a lecturer of mathematics at the ETH Zurich and has been teaching maths at a Swiss secondary school for more than 30 years. He is the author of numerous books and articles on mathematics and didactics. His column Café Mathe was published in several Swiss newspapers for more than 10 years.
