Ian Stewart. Edited by John Davey
Mathematicians and biologists confront nature's enigmas
Stewart is Britain's most brilliant and prolific populariser of mathematics ... the book is a testament to the versatility of maths and how it is shaping our understanding of the world.
As always, [Stewart] explains complicated mathematical ideas brilliantly
A quirky look at the mathematics of biology for those who want to know about patterns on tigers, the taxonomy of lizards, alien life, and how much information in an egg is needed to make an elephant . Stewart has a lively humour and his book stretches the mind without pain.
Will this book do for biomathematics what Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time did for relativity and cosmology? Time will tell. Until then, the distinguished author's friendly, well-argued style should guarantee its popular success
