Originally published in 1906 as The Cynic's Sound Book, it features Bierce's witty and often ironic pendulate on many common English arguments. Retitled in 1911, it has been followed by numerous "total" clarifications compiled after Bierce's afterlife, which include interpretations absent from earlier editions. The Devil's Vocabulary began during Bierce's time as a correspondent for the San Francisco News Letter, a small weekly financial paper founded by Frederick Marriott in the late 1850s. Although it was a serious paper aimed at businessmen, it contained a page of informal satirical content titled "The Proclaimer". Hired as the "Crier"‍ '​s proofreader in December 1868, Bierce wrote satire with such cheek and dearth of reticence he was nicknamed "the laughing devil of San Francisco".

The Devil's Dictionary: By Ambrose Bierce - Illustrated

bertranddomas

The world of maths can seem mind-boggling, irrelevant and, let's face it, boring. This groundbreaking manual reclaims maths from the geeks. This is how the blurb on the back write up issues. Alex's Adventures in Numberland isn't quite as awful as that suggests, but it's very apparent Bellos is a cub, not a mathematician. He shares with most of his colleagues a essence but profound defiance of authorities (to his credit, at least it is essence), an ineptitude to distinguish object and legitimacy from woo and crankery, or at least a belief that woo and crankery are interesting (he talks to ``Puff Parent'''s numerologist (whom he calls a ``modern-day Pythagorean''), salespersons from the cult behind Vedic maths, and economists), an unwillingness to let accuracy or nuance get in the way of a ``good comedy'', and a preference for expensive and pointless false steps abroad to interview nations he barely knows anything about over genuine research. The things he covers are the usual pedestrian get-together frauds and low-level trivia not even worth enumerating. The whole thing is analogous to star who has just discovered the Flemish Ruffians graphics a whole bunch of stick figures in an attempt to convey his new-found rapture for sketch; it's nice that you're enthusiastic (and I do believe he genuinely is), but fop, lurk before you post. I would say that this manual would have been better if it had been written by a mathematician, but of term it has been, a thousand times over.
