"A gripping guide to the modern taming of the infinite." โ€”New York Times

Part history, part philosophy, part love letter to the study of mathematics, Everything and More is an illuminating tour of infinity. With his infectious curiosity and trademark verbal pyrotechnics, David Foster Wallace takes us from Aristotle to Newton, Leibniz, Karl Weierstrass, and finally Georg Cantor and his set theory. Through it all, Wallace proves to be an ideal guideโ€”funny, wry, and unfailingly enthusiastic. Featuring an introduction by Neal Stephenson, this edition is a perfect introduction to the beauty of mathematics and the undeniable strangeness of the infinite.


*Includes a downloadable PDF with images from the text

David Foster Wallace (1962โ€”2008) is the author of Infinite Jest, Girl with Curious Hair, Everything and More, The Broom of the System, and other fiction and nonfiction. Among his honors, he received a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship, a Lannan Literary Award, and a Whiting Writers' Award.

Reviews

Everything and More is, in nearly every way, a gift. It’s a thoughtful and witty 300-page testimonial to the qualities I never fully understood that mathematics possessed: Math is astonishing and full of ‘shadowlands,’ and—ultimately—stunning beauty. —Anthony Doerr, Boston Globe

[Wallace] brings to his task a refreshingly conversational style as well as a surprisingly authoritative command of mathematics…A success.—John Allen Paulos, American Scholar

Wallace is the perfect parachute buddy for a free fall into the mathematical and metaphysical abyss that is infinity.—Dennis Lim, Village Voice

All the grace of pure mathematics without the parts that make me want to bang my head against the wall.—Daniel Handler, Newsday

Shockingly readable…a brilliant antidote both to boring math textbooks and to pop-culture math books that emphasize the discoverer over the discovery.—Booklist (starred review) Expand reviews
