Flatland by Edwin A Abbott


Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions is an 1884 satirical novella by the English schoolmaster Edwin A Abbott. Writing pseudonymously as "A Square",[1] Abbott used the fictional two-dimensional world of Flatland to offer pointed observations on the social hierarchy of Victorian culture. However, the novella's more enduring contribution is its examination of dimensions; in a foreword to one of the many publications of the novella, noted science writer Isaac Asimov described Flatland as ""The best introduction one can find into the manner of perceiving dimensions.""[2] As such, the novella is still popular amongst mathematics, physics, and computer science students.

Several films have been made from the story, including a feature film in 2007 called Flatland. Other efforts have been short or experimental films, including one narrated by Dudley Moore and a short film with Martin Sheen titled Flatland: The Movie.

Graphs of shapes are morphed Likely due to the fact that the book is in text format. Other than the graphs that are ruined due to text scaling, the book is a good and comfortable read.

Handsomely Formatted I was searching for this in books, but found this as an app, even better! And in the age of ad-infested free apps(which I promptly delete) you deserve a special recognition for not putting any ads on it.
