Very well written book showing us how they think more differently than us. Edwin A.Abbott also predicted the existence of the 4th dimension. The book should have all the praise it gets.
Flatland has an interesting history, as it was originally intended to be a criticism of the sociopolitical structure of its day; however, it contained such a mind-opening idea that it went on to inspire a century of physics. I do recommend it.
