New Scientist reviews Alex Bellos's Alex through the Looking-Glass: How life reflects numbers and numbers reflect life.

While reviewer Jacob Aron praises the collection of quotable facts and entertaining episodes Bellos has assembled, he mourns the book's lack of cohesion and failure to delve deeply into the topics covered.

Aron urges interested readers to start with Bellos's previous book, Alex's Adventures in Numberland.
