This book is about a boy named Robert who is having a very hard time with math and he has various characters that are called number devils visit him. These number devils help introduce Robert into the world of mathematics teaching him the different concepts and operations in a dream-like state. The students would find this more engaging because it introduces math creatively and entertainingly which would grab their attention. This book introduces ideas of all types of numbers and it also helps remove any fear of math.… (more)

Mettersi nel cammino dei grandi aforisti non è un compito semplice... I motti da calendario (come li chiama Z.) sono tutt'altra cosa.

Bisognerebbe restare sempre fedeli soltanto a ciò che non si dice.

EN: Interesting book but a bit boring. The "Alice in Wonderland" effect is quite mild. I did not like the distortion of the correct names of mathematical concepts.
Overall I was hoping for better.
-
IT: Libro interessante ma leggermente noioso. L’effetto “Alice nel paese delle meraviglie” è abbastanza mite. Non mi è piaciuta la storpiatura dei nomi corretti dei concetti matematici.
Nel complesso speravo meglio.

„Holiday Inn Blues“

„Hier, in dieser Zelle, / bist du willkommen, / solange du zahlen kannst. / Da ist die Seife, der Stuhl, / das leere Bett, der offene Koffer, / das Röhrchen mit den Tabletten. / Die müde Kunst, / die dich pink angähnt, / ein Telefon, das nicht klingelt – / das ist alles.“
