Re: [BKARTS] The Triangle Book by John H. Conway



So far as I can tell, the book has not yet been released.
A K Peters, Ltd., the publisher, is not yet listing it for sale in their
online catalog. You could contact them with an inquiry at
http://www.akpeters.com/

The high-priced Amazon volume might be an advanced copy. Any others "on
offer" are also "not yet in print." In fact, the Amazon book may not be the
correct title: they have a screwy ISBN system that often mixes data on
entries. The dealer has offered no description, so you'd have to contact
him/her to find out. (And people wonder why I don't list books on Amazon!)

The one photo I have seen that *might* be Conway with a mockup of the book
(unspecified) shows him holding up a sort of 3-D construction composed of
triangles...an interesting structure if that is in fact a mockup of the
book.

Best advice: Contact AK Peters and ask what's up with the publication of the
book.

Subject: [BKARTS] The Triangle Book by John H. Conway


Does anyone know where there is a library copy of this book? Or what it
looks like? It was published in 2008 and supposedly was going to be in the
actual
form of a triangle. It's all about math.
