  • "Why do card tricks work? How can magicians do astonishing feats of mathematics mentally? Why do stage ""mind-reading"" tricks work? As a rule, we simply accept these tricks and ""magic"" without recognizing that they are really demonstrations of strict laws based on probability, sets, number theory, topology, and other branches of mathematics. This is the first book-length study of this fascinating branch of recreational mathematics. Written by one of the foremost experts on mathematical magic, it employs considerable historical data to summarize all previous work in this field. It is also a cr."@en
