John D. Barrow, The Infinite Book: A Short Guide to the Boundless, Timeless and Endless. Pantheon Books, New York, 2005.
An infinitely absurd comment, not worth commenting on, except it's a good example of the reductionistic genre.
But I saw one good quote in this disappointing book, from Jorge Luis Borges:
"There is a concept which corrupts and upsets all others. I refer not
to Evil, whose limited realm is that of ethics; I refer to the infinite."
