"[Cheng] does a great service by showing us non-mathematician schlubs how real mathematical creativity works."* -- Wall Street Journal*

How big is the universe? How many numbers are there? And is infinity + 1 is the same as 1 + infinity? Such questions occur to young children and our greatest minds. And they are all the same question: What is infinity? In *Beyond Infinity*, Eugenia Cheng takes us on a staggering journey from elemental math to its loftiest abstractions. Along the way, she considers how to use a chessboard to plan a worldwide dinner party, how to make a chicken-sandwich sandwich, and how to create infinite cookies from a finite ball of dough.* Beyond Infinity* shows how one little symbol holds the biggest idea of all.
