Mathematics is all around you. And it's a great defence against the sharks, cowboys and liars who want your vote, your money, or your life - as Paulos's latest book makes crystal clear (Ian Stewart, author of Does God Play Dice?) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
