DIVINE PUNCH LINES
The Proofs from THE BOOK refer to a [story often told] by one of the greatest mathematicians of this century, Paul Erdös... Erdös imagined that particularly striking proofs be recorded for posterity in a book under almost divine administration, that is, in THE BOOK.
Their charm is seen in this successful and cleverly illustrated book about THE BOOK. To really enjoy it, it is well worth brushing up on the small amount of math that we have forgotten or that we were never taught at school.
Thomas von Randow, DIE ZEI T, 1998 (English translation)
