The book gives some accessible and charming explanations of geometry and physics for the curious non-mathematician. Flatland imagines a two-dimensional world inhabited by sentient geometric shapes who think their planar world is all there is.

This book will take you on a journey to the extreme regions, just before the point where logic breaks down. It discusses the impossible, the infinite, the unimaginable, the uncomputable and the undecidable. Our motivation will be that of an explorer.
