Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
The definitive work of Martin Gardner's brilliant, seven-decades-long career, "The Night Is Large" collects 54 of the most significant essays by this popular writer best known for his "Mathematical Games" columns which appeared in "Scientific American" magazine for more than 25 years.

Review:
"In a broad-ranging collection of essays on mathematics, theoretical physics, philosophy, literature, and religion, Gardner has a panoramic view from the shoulders of such giants as Einstein, William James, and L. Frank Baum....If Newton was, as he said, like a boy playing on the seashore of an undiscovered ocean of truth, then Gardner too has amassed an impressive shell collection."

Kirkus, 05/01/1996

Review:
"'The Night is Large' is a representative sampling of this mathematical magpie's essays...It's a superb volume, a mansion of a book in which one can live happily for a month or visit for a quarter-hour."

Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book World, 07/14/1996
