This review is from: How Many Socks Make a Pair?: Surprisingly Interesting Maths (Kindle Edition)
A brilliant little book. Mr Eastaway really does succeed in making maths interesting and, although I had read some of this stuff before, this book is still fascinating. I withheld a fifth star only because some of the later sections were a bit harder going but the first 70% of the book is interesting, surprising and sometimes amusing. Quite often a bit of graphic display helps and this book has lots of illustrations to make crystal clear how things work; a feature I found invaluable.

I liked the 'folding' card trick so much that I learned it for future use and my wicked sense of fun just loved the 'where is the father?' section.

Most of what I've read here has already slipped past my memory banks but, if I've retained even just a couple of things, then I'm happy and, even if not, this little book has been thoroughly entertaining and a joy to read. It's one of those books that I'll go back and dip into again in the future. You don't have to be a maths geek to enjoy this bok and I recommend it whole heartedly.
