This all-new fourth edition of the most popular motorcycle touring guide to New England offers more suggested routes than ever, along with fully updated listings of motorcycle-friendly lodgings and great out-of-the-way restaurants. Motojournalist Ken Aiken leads two-wheeled travelers through twisty mountain passes and beautiful valley backroads to scenic, intriguing destinations in six key regions: the rugged Maine coast, the high notches of New Hampshire's White Mountains, the lush gaps of the Green Mountains of Vermont, the Lake Champlain region between upstate New York and Vermont, the rolling Berkshire hills of Massachusetts, and the coastal delights of Rhode Island and Connecticut. Aiken covers well-known motorcycle-touring roads like Vermont's Route 100, the Mohawk Trail, and the Kancamagus Highway, but his inclusion of little known regional roads frequented by local riders sets this guide apart from others. Altogether, Aiken has carefully plotted 28 trips for motorcyclists, most of them taking one day to complete. Multi-day tours can easily be created by linking adjacent trips. Each trip includes a detailed map and specific route directions. The trips are designed to accommodate various riding styles and audiences, from sightseeing two-up travelers to sport riders bending the curves.

This revised and enlarged sixth edition of Proofs from THE BOOK features an entirely new chapter on Van der Waerden’s permanent conjecture, as well as additional, highly original and delightful proofs in other chapters. From the citation on the occasion of the 2018 "Steele Prize for Mathematical Exposition" “... It is almost impossible to write a mathematics book that can be read and enjoyed by people of all levels and backgrounds, yet Aigner and Ziegler accomplish this feat of exposition with virtuoso style. [...] This book does an invaluable service to mathematics, by illustrating for non-mathematicians what it is that mathematicians mean when they speak about beauty.” From the Reviews "... Inside PFTB (Proofs from The Book) is indeed a glimpse of mathematical heaven, where clever insights and beautiful ideas combine in astonishing and glorious ways. There is vast wealth within its pages, one gem after another. ... Aigner and Ziegler... write: "... all we offer is the examples that we have selected, hoping that our readers will share our enthusiasm about brilliant ideas, clever insights and wonderful observations." I do. ... " Notices of the AMS, August 1999 "... This book is a pleasure to hold and to look at: ample margins, nice photos, instructive pictures and beautiful drawings ... It is a pleasure to read as well: the style is clear and entertaining, the level is close to elementary, the necessary background is given separately and the proofs are brilliant. ..." LMS Newsletter, January 1999 "Martin Aigner and Günter Ziegler succeeded admirably in putting together a broad collection of theorems and their proofs that would undoubtedly be in the Book of Erdös. The theorems are so fundamental, their proofs so elegant and the remaining open questions so intriguing that every mathematician, regardless of speciality, can benefit from reading this book. ...
