Mathematics and the Imagination book. This figure is way off no matter what he was trying to express, which is not at all clear from his word choices. What it looks like he is saying, based on the actual words he uses, is the highest number of individual moves that could be played in a single game.

We are in 1940, Kasner and Newman are compiling strange things you can see using mathematics (i.e. using a mathescope). If "imagination" triggered your curiosity, this book is far better than its title. Let us define "far" as one googleplex, which is enormous but finite. One googleplex of what? Up to you. Say fish steaks or kangaroos. It is just a matter of scale, you got infinity within 0 and 1. As you can see, this book may drive you mad.... A hell of a lot of wit and ingenuity within.

I first read this book in 1956 and was amazed at its clarity. When my granddaughter had trouble understanding the concept that a series with an infinite number of terms could nevertheless have a finite sum, I thought immediately of this book. It is a classic and required reading for anyone seeking to gain an understanding of the differences between infinity and very large numbers amongst other things. Having completed the first course in algebra will be a help to understanding this book but it not a requirement.

I read this for the first time in 1971, when I was in high school. It was a good layman's introduction to many of the fields of mathematics then, and it still is. It doesn't have anything about some of the newer developments, such as fractals, but it's still informative and entertaining.

I gained quite a few good concepts relating to the philosophies behind mathematics along with good mathematic examples that anyone with basic algebra skills would yield some benefit from.

It's a fun book with it's twists and turns of subject matter.

I read it when I was 12, then again at 35, and now at 70 years old. I have revisited it throughout my life and I am most grateful for all it has given me.

I found the book to be very interesting. There were parts that were beyond my knowledge or interest. I would buy again and recommend to others.
The book provides a logical and entertaining explanation of the principals of mathematics and their development.
