Praise for Five Golden Rules
"Casti is one of the great science writers of the 1990s. . . . If
you''d like to have fun while giving your brain a first-class
workout, then check this book out."-Keay Davidson in the San
"Five Golden Rules is caviar for the inquiring reader. . . . There
is joy here in watching the unfolding of these intricate and
beautiful techniques. Casti''s gift is to be able to let the
nonmathematical reader share in his understanding of the beauty of
a good theory." -Christian Science Monitor.
"Merely knowing about the existence of some of these golden rules
may spark new, interesting-maybe revolutionary-ideas in your mind."
-Robert Matthews in New Scientist (United Kingdom).
"This book has meat! It is solid fare, food for thought. Five
Golden Rules makes math less forbidding and much more interesting."
-Ben Bova in the Hartford Courant
"With this groundbreaking work, John Casti shows himself to be a
great mathematics writer. Five Golden Rules is a feast of rare new
delights all made perfectly comprehensible." -Rudy Rucker, author
of The Fourth Dimension.
"With the lucid informality for which he has become known, John
Casti has written an engaging and articulate examination of five
great mathematical theorems and their myriad applications." -John
