"Bunny loops the loop": Review of *Strange Curves, Counting Rabbits, and Other Mathematical Explorations,* by Keith Ball. Reviewed by Ben Longstaff. *New Scientist*, 31 January 2004, page 49.

This enthusiastic review praises the book for showing that mathematics "is deeply and gloriously satisfying". In ten chapters the book explores a divers range of mathematical topics in a way that is accessible to "anyone with a bit of calculus." The book does not just present polished results; as the reviewer puts it, "This is maths with the hood up and the engine running."
