Pressestimmen'This might turn out to be a boring, shallow book review: I merely LOVED the book...the explanations are so clear, so considerate; the author must have taught the subject many times, since he anticipates virtually every potential question, concern, and misconception in a student's or reader's mind.' MAA Reviews 'John Bell has done a first rate job in presenting an elementary introduction to this fascinating subject ... I recommend it highly.' J. P. Mayberry, British Journal for the Philosophy of Science
