Benoit Mandelbrot, recently deceased French and American mathematician, was born in Warsaw in 1924. in the vernacular realm can aid historians in understanding the dynamics of science in American life. In 1936 he and his family fled the Nazis and in France joined his uncle Szolem Mandelbrojt, professor of mathematics at Collège de France. After attending Ecole Polytechnique, he studied linguistics and proved Zipf's law. He was an extremely original scientist who with the invention of fractals created a new concept with applications in numerous fields of science and art. His unconventional approach was well accepted when he came to IBM in 1958.

This book collects essays about fractal's role in mathematics and science education. Some Reasons for the Effectiveness of Fractals in Mathematics Education by Benoit B Mandelbrot Michael Frame. The next twelve chapters are invited case studies authored by educators who began years ago to use fractal geometry in classes that range from second grade elementary school, through public and private high schools, to state universities and private colleges. Some contributors survey literature and software they have used, others present detailed sample lessons.

Reviews about Benoit Mandelbrot: A Life in Many Dimensions (Fractals and Dynamics in Mathematics, Science, and the Arts: Theory and Applications) (3):
Bandiri
This is a definitive collection of specially written chapters that highlight the work of Mandelbrot, through his colleagues, friends, and those whom he mentored. It also has fascinating tidbits on his life and the impact of fractals and roughness, on many others. Some have compared Mandelbrot with Hawking and Einstein in terms of his acheivements. This book is an essential addition to those who want to know who he was and what he did, and how it changed the world, and will continue to do so.
Hasirri
This is a beautiful book about a true genius, who inspired me to make three films about him. The most well known is 'The Colors of Infinity'. This film has shown in over 40 countries, is available in 4 languages and inspired a book of the same title, which is published by Springer. Mandelbrot was very pleased with this film.
Malojurus
This extraordinary work is a touching, insightful, and informative collection of reflections, personal accounts, and research, many of which are written by Mandelbrot's friends and colleagues. The accounts are amazing for the breadth of influence they represent, from mathematics and science to the arts and economics.

What gives this book a unique sense of authenticity is that we hear directly from people whose lives were profoundly impacted by Benoit's friendship and his work. These personal and professional perspectives vividly portray the multidimensionality of Benoit's life. The individual voices are as varied as the subject matter they cover.

The editing and production of the book itself are top-notch. Overall, it is a fitting tribute to an extraordinary man who happened to be a true genius of the modern age.
