Product description

Review

Matt Parker has pulled off something wonderful . . . his stories are superb. (Marcus Berkmann The Daily Mail)

Parker is consistently very funny . . . highly entertaining. (The Guardian)

Numbers to die for. Four stars. (Simon Griffith Mail on Sunday)

Bought it yesterday, enjoying it enormously, well done! (Dara Ó Briain Twitter)

I just finished the new book by irrepressible maths enthusiast @standupmaths, and it's GREAT! (Adam Savage, ex-host of 'Mythbusters' Twitter)

An entertaining and often alarming journey through the numerical blunders made over the years. (The Big Issue)

"[Matt Parker] shows off math at its most playful and multifarious" --Jordan Ellenberg, author of "How to Not Be Wrong (Jordan Ellenberg)

Matt Parker is some sort of unholy fusion of a prankster, wizard and brilliant nerd--maths is rarely this clever, funny and ever so slightly naughty. (Adam Rutherford, author of "Creation")

About the Author

Originally a maths teacher from Australia, Matt Parker now lives in Godalming in a house full of almost every retro video-game console ever made. He is fluent in binary and could write your name in a sequence of noughts and ones in seconds. He loves doing maths and stand-up, often simultaneously. When he's not working as the Public Engagement in Mathematics Fellow at Queen Mary University of London, he's performing in sold-out live comedy shows, spreading his love of maths via TV and radio, or converting photographs into Excel spreadsheets. He is the author of Things to Make and Do in the Fourth Dimension.
