From the Publisher"Pickover alternates expositions of math, physics and geometry with episodes of instructional science fiction while showing interested amateurs the mathematical and physical properties of higher spatial dimensions."—Publishers Weekly
"Is there, asks Clifford Pickover, more to our Universe than forwards, sidewards, and up? Before I knew it, I was well and truly infected. After explaining how his book would cover all the usual stuff about higher dimensions—their unimaginability, their weird properties, and how physicists think they may hold the key to understanding the Universe—Pickover sprung his trap: 'I want to know if humankind's gods could exist in the fourth dimension'....I read the book in two sittings. I'm still under its influence, which is all the more perplexing considering how abstract and unworldly higher dimensions are."—Robert Mathews, New Scientist
"Mark my words: within a few months, you too will come across others in the grip of infection by this amazing book."—New Scientist
"Extraordinary book."—Daily Telegraph (UK)
"In recent years, Pickover has taken up the helm once worn by Isaac Asimov as the most compelling popular explainer of cutting-edge scientific ideas."—"In Pittsburgh"
