Different order of Sephiroth?

I am reading "The Mystery of the Aleph: Mathematics, the Kabbalah, and the Search for Infinity" by Amir D. Aczel
The first chapter is about ancient Greek mathematics, which was fascinating. The second chapter is about Kabbalah.
Here I become puzzled.He lists the Sefirot: 1. Keter 2. Binah 3. Chochma 4. Gevura 5. Chesed 6. Tiferet 7. Hod 8. Netzach 9. Yesod 10. Malchut
Does anyone ever list the sefirot in that order? Seems all wrong to me. I wondered if there was a different method, or did he screw up?He gives different colors also. I know there are different color scales, but I haven't studied them.
Keterblack and white, Binahgreen Chochmablue Gevurared Chesedwhite Tiferetwhite Hodgreen Netzachred Yesodwhite Malchutwhite
Are these correct in some system?Thank you

"Without a book for reference, going from memory only:
Kether is not black in any scale
Binah is not green in any scale
Chesed not white
Tifereth not white
Hod not green
Netzah not red
Yesod not white, Malkuth alsoI see no pattern in the attributed colors.
And generally, the sequence of Sefiroth he gives seems to be pure nonsense.
Does he cite any source, or just presents the Tree like this? 
It's not footnoted. The back of the book has a list of References. The only book I see listed on Kabbalah is "Kabbalah and Consciousness" by Allen Afterman

I finished reading this book. It was a fascinating read. It explained mathematical concepts for the layperson, and it also went into the personal lives of famous mathematicians.
It explained ideas about infinity that were fascinating.
I haven't looked up his source for his information on the Kabalah, so I still don't get that. I see that my public library system has it  "Kabbalah and Consciousness" by Allen Afterman  but I am so busy, not sure when I will get to it.
