Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
In The Night Is Large, Martin Gardner has assembled forty-seven challenging and inquisitive essays into a work that places him at the heart of twentieth-century American intellectual culture. Delving into an immense range of topics, from philosophy and literature to social criticism to mathematics and science, with essays that date from 1930s to the 1990s, Martin Gardner has astounded readers with his insight and erudition. The Night Is Large is the crowning achievement of his extraordinary career.

Review:
Martin Gardner has a knack for wondering about everything. From Alice in Wonderland to supply-side economics, Gardner has spent a lifetime discovering, pondering, and explaining ideas. His essays, most of which appeared in Scientific American and The New York Review of Books, often tackles the big issues--is there a God?--in a language the rest of us can digest. He has the eye to recognize what most people don't and the voice to articulate what many of us can't.
