Review quote

"Engaging (and educational) . . . Singh delves into the academic backgrounds of some of the most poindextrous Simpsons writers." --Wired "Mathematical concepts both useful and obscure explained via the antics of America's favorite yellow family!" --Mental Floss "Plenty of solid, vest-pocket profiles of both the show's writers and great mathematicians of the past . . . A fun trip with the 'ultimate TV vehicle for pop culture mathematics.'" --Kirkus Reviews "Simon Singh's excellent book blows the lid off a decades-long conspiracy to secretly educate cartoon viewers." --David X. Cohen, writer for The Simpsons and Futurama "It's hard to imagine a grander, more thrilling story . . . fast-paced . . . hugely entertaining . . . Big Bang is, quite literally, cosmic." --New York Times on Big Bang "Singh spins tales of cryptic intrigue in every chapter." --Wall Street Journal on The Code Bookshow more
