The puzzles are now syndicated daily in newspapers in Australia, Germany, Scandinavia, Italy and Spain, and the mania for Sudoku has just reached us.

Why was the number of Hardy's taxi significant? Why does Graham's number need its own notation? How many grains of sand would fill the universe? What is the connection between the Golden Ratio and sunflowers? Why is 999 more than a distress call? All these questions and a host more are answered in this fascinating book, which has now been newly revised, with nearly 200 extra entries and some 250 additions to the original entries. From minus one and its square root, via cyclic, weird, amicable, perfect, untouchable and lucky numbers, aliquot sequences, the Cattle problem, Pascal's triangle and the Syracuse algorithm, music, magic and maps, pancakes, polyhedra and palindromes, to numbers so large that they boggle the imagination, all you ever wanted to know about numbers is here. There is even a comprehensive index for those annoying occasions when you remember the name but can't recall the number.

Erinnern wir uns nicht alle mit Schrecken an die ratlosen Momente vor der Tafel im Matheunterricht? Mit Kurvendiskussionen und Dreisatz dürften jedenfalls nur wenige Spaß und Spannung verbinden... Bis jetzt! Denn nun wagt sich Alex Bellos in den Kaninchenbau der Mathematik: in das Reich von Geometrie und Algebra, von Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung, Statistik und logischen Paradoxa. Auf der anderen Seite des Erdballs, am Amazonas, zählen die Mitglieder des Indianerstammes der Munduruku nur bis fünf und halten die Vorstellung, dass dies nicht genügen solle, für reichlich lächerlich. Bei uns in Deutschland dagegen finden jährlich die Meisterschaften der besten Kopfrechner der Welt statt - 2010 wurde in Magdeburg eine elfjährige Inderin zur Nummer eins unter den "Mathleten" gekürt. Die Mathe-Weltmeisterin unter den Tieren ist hingegen die Schimpansin Ai, die Alex Bellos im japanischen Inuyama aufspürt und über deren Rechenkünste er nur staunen kann. Auch wenn er von den bahnbrechenden Überlegungen Euklids erzählt oder erklärt, warum man in Japan seine Visitenkarten keinesfalls zu Dodekaedern falten sollte - Bellos führt uns durch das wahrhaft erstaunliche Reich der Zahlen und bringt uns eine komplexe Wissenschaft spielerisch nahe. Mit seiner Mischung aus spannender Reportage, Wissenschaftsgeschichte und mathematischen Kabinettstückchen erbringt er souverän den Beweis, dass die Gleichung Mathematik = Langeweile eindeutig nicht wahr ist. Quod erat demonstrandum.

Es gibt eine Zeit zu leben. Eine zu sterben. Und eine zu töten. Die Familie Fletcher ist erst vor kurzem aufs Land gezogen. Doch die vermeintliche englische Dorfidylle entpuppt sich bald als Alptraum. Die beiden Söhne der Fletchers hören auf dem Friedhof nahe des Hauses rätselhafte Stimmen und sehen immer wieder die seltsame Gestalt eines Kindes. Als eine Friedhofsmauer einstürzt und ein Grab mit den Überresten dreier Mädchen freigelegt wird, ist klar, dass der Ort ein tödliches Geheimnis birgt. Auch der neue Vikar, Harry Laycock, und die Psychotherapeutin Evi Oliver werden in die rätselhaften Vorgänge um verschwundene Mädchen und ein unfassbares Verbrechen hineingezogen. Und die kleine Tochter der Fletchers könnte das nächste Opfer eines rätselhaften Killers sein ...
