Measuring the World is a novel of rare charm and readability, distinguished by its sly humour and unforgettable characterization. It brings the two eccentric geniuses to life - their longings and their weaknesses, and their balancing acts between loneliness and love, absurdity and greatness, failure and success.

"The narrative is notable for its brisk pacing, lively prose and wry humor...which keenly complements Kehlmann's intelligent, if not especially deep, treatment of science, mathematics and reason at the end of the Enlightenment." (Publishers Weekly)
