This is definitely one of the best math books I picked up in the library. I enjoyed reading it. The topics it covers are fun and stimulating.
Matt Parker makes high-level math concepts accessible like no one else I’ve ever seen, using familiar everyday concepts and examples and a mixture of grade-school style hand-on activities to bring the abstract back down to earth and reality. For those that want to go even deeper, some of the more arcane concepts and proofs are more fully explained in the “The Answers at the Back of the Book”.
More than any other book I’ve read, Parker’s journey through numbers and beyond really brings out the fun and whimsy there is to be found in the world of math.
Matt Parker gives us a wonderful insight into the world of mathematics not typically taught in American public schools. From learning about strange numerical patterns to the strange appearances of pi, Parker allows us to see beyond the number crunching of basic mathematics and allows anyone interested to start to enjoy a subject which for many was and is a loathsome chore.
An interesting look at varied mathematics and mathematical concepts. The author presents these concepts in a fun, tongue in cheek way to assist in conceptualizing the different shapes and dimensions. Doesn't make you do any math but it helps if you have some knowledge. Worth reading if you are interested.
