I found this book incredibly interesting, and I'm no maths fan - I leafed through it while babysitting for a friend who has a son of 9, then I bought the book for myself! It is so well written and extremely funny in parts. I would recommend this book to anyone of any age. I guarentee you will learn something new.

I was fortunate enough to see Mr. Ball live at Yeovil College 2 years ago and bought this book on the strength of that. Maths was a real struggle for me but Johnny made everything easy to understand and fun! Now my own children can have the same input with this marvellous book. Designed for anyone and everyone - brightly coloured and brimming with Johnny's fun personality, this book will help anyone to rediscover their relationship with maths and who knows, maybe even build on it. I am studying to become a maths teacher and Johnny Ball is certainly part of my inspiration.

I am 9 and I think it is very funny. I have learnt that if we didn't have numbers then we wouldn't be able to talk about size, height, quantity, weight etc. I'm still reading it and really enjoy it.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Book Beaver on 14 Jan. 2012
Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book that draws the reader in and keeps them hooked. It is suitable for anyone interested in mathematics and is likely to convert those who aren't!
It is superbly presented and is split into four (2 squared and also 2 + 2) sections; The origin of numbers, Magic numbers, Shapes and The World of Maths. The illustrations, diagrams and photos complement the text immensely. Highlights include the section on big numbers which includes the number of sand grains needed to fill the Universe, the entry on Pi (recently worked out to 1.24 trillion decimal places!), the feature on polygons, the pages on the 5 Platonic solids and the brilliant article on the art of maths which includes art by Escher, Carpaccio and Holbein.

My son's teacher is the maths co-ordinator and, having got this book out of the library, we thought it would be a lovely present for his teacher at the end of term - she was absolutely delighted with it!
