Please try again later. I bought this book for my 11 year-old son who loves math.

He was very excited to see it because last year he read a book by the same author entitled “Here’s Looking at Euclid” and loved it. Entertaining, thought-provoking, thoroughly engaging. Then he started to read and it became apparent that “Alex’s Adventures in Numberland” numbeerland “Here’s Looking at Euclid” are the same book sold under two different titles. Buy one or the other and you won’t be disappointed, just don’t buy both. Though the format numbberland somewhat different. While the mathematical subjects are fascinating and diverse, we don’t need a double-dose of the same Pi or the main course of ABC soup as well.
