"This book offers an engaging and practical guide for parents and educators, and a delight for anyone interested in sharing the pleasures of mathematics."--Lunar and Planetary Information Bulletin
"Out of the Labyrinth will delight readers with its engaging exploration of mathematics. It will allow students, parents, teachers, and others to wrestle with the accessible mysteries of math- and discover their inner math genius."--Lunar and Planetary Information Bulletin
"Out of the Labyrinth rejoices in the serious play of mathematics and explains how to think about math as a truely common pursuit... This beautiful book- full of fun and full of the wisdom of a lifetime of teaching-is so deftly done that by the time the Kaplans tell us that "math is out other native language," we believe them utterly."-- Barry Mazur, Gerhard Gade University Professory, Harvard University.
"I found the book to be a provocative guide to the beauty and glory of mathematics with many excellent suggestions on how to communicate this to others, written by two masters of the art. I enjoyed the sections the most where I agreed with them the least. It challenged every prejudice I had developed about the subject."--Benedict Gross, Leverett Professor of Mathematics and Dean of Harvard College
