«Un petit bijou, un ouvrage pédagogique de premier plan.Publié voici plus d’un demi-siècle, cet ouvrage n’a pas pris une ride. L’auteur nous entraîne des concepts mathématiques les plus élémentaires qui soient, ceux que l’on enseigne à l’école primaire, jusqu’à des notions subtiles que l’on aborde en fin d’études secondaires, voire au-delà ! Elle ne craint pas de discuter des paradoxes qui ont fait trembler les meilleurs mathématiciens du début du XXe siècle.Un style littéraire élégant sans être précieux, riche de références. Et c’est ainsi que l’on trouvera dans ce livre quantité de belles formules (pas seulement mathématiques !), des introductions alléchantes et des chutes tranchantes, des allusions à maints poètes et romanciers.Au final, c’est une vision saine, simple et moderne de la mathématique qui se dégage.» Cédric Villani -- 4ème de couverture
