Straight talking classics
The Canto imprint features popular books from influential mathematicians and renowned scientists, past and present, including G.H. Hardy and Nobel laureate Erwin Schrödinger.
Canto Classics have received praise from leading publications:
'A gripping tale to tell...I would recommend it...to anyone who has the slightest interest in how our planet came to be the way it is.' John Gribbin, The Sunday Times, on The Dating Game.
'Enthusiastically recommended to both scientific and general readers.' The Guardian, on Mr Tompkins in Paperback.
'It succeeds extraordinarily well in this task of portraying and assessing the real fabric of scientific research, based on the insights of modern scholarship.' Bernard Dixon, former Editor of the New Scientist, on The Golem.
Whether focusing on the lives of individuals, or the history of nations, or the age of the universe, Canto Classics exhibit the breadth of Cambridge scholarship.
