Everything and More: A Compact History of Infinity – David Foster Wallace

Everything and More

It’s always hard to read about a subject you’re not familiar with. Except with this book. David Foster Wallace is known for Infinite JestOblivion, and other works of fiction; but this piece of non-fiction helps to blend philosophy, mathematics, and history into an easily readable text that gives insight into the foundation of our existence. I think it’s interesting. There are definitely some points where I had to reread a section, but Wallace makes it accessible and entertaining.

I would recommend carrying a small notebook around while reading this one, the pages are already packed.
