Publisher's Summary

"A gripping guide to the modern taming of the infinite." (New York Times)

Part history, part philosophy, part love letter to the study of mathematics, Everything and More is an illuminating tour of infinity. With his infectious curiosity and trademark verbal pyrotechnics, David Foster Wallace takes us from Aristotle to Newton, Leibniz, Karl Weierstrass, and finally Georg Cantor and his set theory. Through it all, Wallace proves to be an ideal guide - funny, wry, and unfailingly enthusiastic. Featuring an introduction by Neal Stephenson, this edition is a perfect introduction to the beauty of mathematics and the undeniable strangeness of the infinite. 

Includes a downloadable PDF with images from the text. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

"Everything and More is, in nearly every way, a gift. It’s a thoughtful and witty 300-page testimonial to the qualities I never fully understood that mathematics possessed: Math is astonishing and full of ‘shadowlands,’ and - ultimately - stunning beauty." (Anthony Doerr, Boston Globe)

"[Wallace] brings to his task a refreshingly conversational style as well as a surprisingly authoritative command of mathematics.... A success." (John Allen Paulos, American Scholar

"Wallace is the perfect parachute buddy for a free fall into the mathematical and metaphysical abyss that is infinity." (Dennis Lim, Village Voice
