I was rather disappointed with this book. Though decently written and fairly easy to understand, it simply lacked the content I was hoping for. Perhaps though this was my own mistake, as I was looking for a more theological/philosophical themed exploration of infinity. While they do touch upon these themes lightly, for most of the book I had to drugde through lots and lots of mathematical concepts and theories (which to be honest isn't really my thing). I suppose my complaint is more for the summary/back of the book which didn't really warn me what I was in for; my mistake perhaps. For the most part, if you're interested, it's a decent book. Worth the time if you have it to spare, but not if there are other things that take priority.
