Irrationality in numbers....the book


Hello all, several months ago, there was a topic about an upcoming book about irrational numbers.

Whatever became of this book?


Which one?

Could it be this (the discussion)?

Yup!! That's the one because I remember the curiosity about the cover being mentioned.


Has this book been published yet?

Although, and it was discussed in the thread you posted, I wonder why the rational square roots were included on the cover graphic.
