Number Devil by Hans Magnus Enzensberger

Book Description

Twelve-year-old Robert hates his maths teacher. He sets his class boring problems and won't let them use their calculators. Then in his dreams Robert meets the Number Devil who brings the subject magically to life, illustrating with wit and charm a world in which numbers can amaze and fascinate, where maths is nothing like the dreary, difficult process that so many of us dread. "The Number Devil" knows how to make maths devilishly simple.

Mr. Zed's Reflections by Hans Magnus Enzensberger Mr. Zed's Reflections, Hardback (November 2015)

With subversive energy and masterful brevity, Mr Zed undermines arrogance, megalomania, and false authority. A determined speaker who doesn't care for ambitions, he forces topics that others would rather keep to themselves. This work collects the considerations and provocations of this squat park-bench philosopher.

Reflexiones del Senor Z. by Hans Magnus Enzensberger Reflexiones del Senor Z., Paperback / softback (June 2015)
