A companion to Mathematical Apocrypha, this second volume of anecdotes, stories, quips, and ruminations about mathematics and mathematicians is sure to please.

It differs from other books of its type in that many of the stories are from the twentieth century and many about currently living mathematicians.

A number of the best stories come from the author's first-hand experience.

The writing is lively, engaging, and informative. There are stories the reader may wish to share with students and colleagues, friends, and relatives.

The purpose of the book is to explore and to celebrate the many facets of mathematical life.

The stories reveal mathematicians as intense, human, and sympathetic.

They should resonate with readers everywhere.
