    From zero to infinity, via 1, root 2, perfect numbers and googleplexes, Freiberger and Thomas, the editors of Plus magazine, are our guides on an entertaining, if occasionally challenging, journey through mathematics. Rather than a comprehensive plod, the authors' route is through the exciting bits and their favourite stories of 'the valiant heroes, the baffling mysteries and the brilliant conquests' of mathematics.
