Gardner's passion for writing and his warmth and humour shine forth on every page of this book making it a memoir of a great human being.'---David Singmaster Nature'The style is that of a memoir conversationally phrased and not afraid to be sidetracked occasionally by an amusing aside. Gardner paints vividly an inside picture of American intellectual life in the twentieth century coloured by honest accounts of the many influential figures with whom he came into contact.'---Alexander Shannon Plus Klappentext 'Informative original unexpected and always charmingly written with his uniquely subtle sense of fun this final autobiographical work of Martin GardnerUndiluted Hocus-Pocus sums up his own life and opinions in the way that has become so familiar and inspirational to us from his well-known writings on puzzles mathematics philosophy and the oddities of the world.'--Roger Penrose author ofCycles of Time: An Extraordinary New View of the Universe'Martin Gardner was the most learned man I have ever met.
