This is probably the most enjoyable book about maths ever written. From impossibly small pizza slices to computers built out of dominoes, unfathomable knots to multi-dimensional drinking straws, Matt Parker introduces the amazing, essential, riotous world of numbers that is all around us, absolutely everywhere. 'Matt Parker is some sort of unholy fusion of a prankster, wizard and brilliant nerd - clever, funny and ever so slightly naughty.' Adam Rutherford, author of Creation 'Matt Parker never got the memo about maths being boring . . . he seeks to reconnect us to the numbers around us.' Simon Usborne, Independent 'The book oozes with sheer joy.' New Scientist 'Essential reading.' Observer
