Summary

More than 600,000 copies sold in Germany, knocking both J.K. Rowling and Dan Brown off the best-seller lists.

The most successful German novel since Patrick Süskind's Perfume.

Measuring the World recreates the parallel but contrasting lives of two geniuses of the German Enlightenment - the naturalist and explorer Alexander von Humboldt and the mathematician and physicist Carl Friedrich Gauss. Daniel Kehlmann has produced a novel of rare charm and readability, distinguished by its sly humor and unforgettable characterization.
