Julian Havil’s The Irrationals: A Story of the Numbers You Can’t Count On is a fascinating and quite challneging (for me, at least) book.
But it also contains at least two errors – that I can spot – one on the inside dust cover and one on page 79 where roots are presented as squares. I doubt either are the author’s responsibility.
Perhaps there are others – page 79 is as far as I have got and I am not an expert reader.
I am disappointed that Princeton University Press have not seen fit to publish an errata. Does anyone publish them these days?
