From the cover: “Look through any encyclopaedia for entries on numbers and you will be sorely disappointed. At best you might find entries for seven and 666. John Grant, who readily confesses that he is not a mathematician, has set out to remedy this glaring omission. The entries in this engaging and idiosyncratic book are arranged in strictly numerical order. The juxtaposition of curious facts thus produced is quite as fantastic as any alphabetical arrangement can yield.”
