I received another batch of books from my publisher this morning. These are more translation editions of The Book of Numbers: German, US, Japanese, and Brazilian. Strangely the Brazilian version has a different cover image from all the others, and to my surprise it has a quote from Scientific American. I was surprised because to my knowledge Scientific American never actually reviewed the book. One of my PhD students solved the mystery - apparently my book was listed in Scientific American's "New and Notable Books about Numbers" in May 2008, and the "quote" refers to that list. Not quite sure why they chose to do that when we have plenty of other good quotes, but perhaps in Brazil this is the best way to sell books... Anyway, the book looks very nice so I'm sure Brazilian readers should like it.

I don't know if this is the best way to sell books in Brazil. Perhaps not, but I did buy one of it today via Internet (because the numbers told me that it was cheaper than to buy it at a local bookstore) This is amazing because the seller will not charge me the transport cost from Rio to Curitiba (where I live). I hold a degree on Math and another in Civil Engineering and I think I will enjoy it very much. Thank you for such a wonderful book.
