There comes a time when one becomes so amused by a work of literature, that one must simply own it :).

I ordered two copies (one for myself and the other to gift), seeing as to the wait to re-borrow would be longer than when I first placed a hold on this title.

Thank you Mr. A Benjamin & M Shermer for sharing the art that is Math!

Not something to read from cover to cover, but a fun book to check out from time to time and learn a couple of new impressive tricks.
