"Reflections of Reflections Without End": Review of *Indra's Pearls: The Vision of Felix Klein,* by David Mumford, Caroline Series, and David Wright. Reviewed by Michael Field. *Science,* 7 March 2003, pages 1520-1521.

As the review states, "[T]he authors have the ambitious goal of conveying some of the flavor and quite remarkable properties of non-Euclidean geometries." Calling the book "a work of art," the review praises the book's striking graphics as well as its exposition. "I am sure that the book will have a major impact on the way we teach geometry and dynamics," the reviewer asserts.
