The world of maths can seem mind-boggling, irrelevant and, let's face
it, boring. This groundbreaking book reclaims maths from the geeks.
Mathematical ideas underpin just about everything in our lives: from the
surprising geometry of the 50p piece to how probability can help you 
win in any casino. In search of weird and wonderful mathematical
phenomena, Alex Bellos travels across the globe and meets the world's
fastest mental calculators in Germany and a startlingly numerate
chimpanzee in Japan. Packed with fascinating, eye-opening anecdotes, Alex's Adventures in Numberland is an exhilarating cocktail of history, reportage and mathematical proofs that will leave you awestruck.
