5.0 out of 5 stars Unsurprisingly interesting.
There are a few everyday maths books out there nowadays, but not many are the equal of Eastaway's clever, curious, witty tour of the way it crops up just about everywhere. If you've read his others, there'll be nothing surprising about how interesting this one is (so, wrong subtitle, but you know what he means), or how accessible (it's beautifully clear), but you might be...

Well worth reading - the sort of book an intelligent non-mathematician can read on holiday.

There were some interesting parts for the ordinary reader but others that become over complex and tiresome. I used to be a Maths teacher but got quickly bored though for quick dip ins it would be reasonably interesting. Not a leisure time read though.
