Product description

Review

'Dr Hannah Fry shows that mathematical modelling underpins everything from the possibility of finding a partner to the number of sexual partners we have in a lifetime' Observer

'Mathematician Fry explores the age-old questions about relationships by examining patterns behind love and lust in this smart, funny read' Marie Claire

'How do you know when you've found the one? The answer may lie in a simple equation' --The Sunday Times

'Is there a mathematical formula for love? Applied mathematician Hannah Fry says there are several. Her new book, The Mathematics of Love, features a chapter on each stage of the romantic journey, taking in online dating, chatting people up, going on dates, settling down, getting married and being in a long-term relationship' --The Independent

'The Mathematics of Love by Dr Hannah Fry of University College London, claims that finding the one isn't chemically-driven, biologically-motivated or even astrologically-determined. No it's a numbers game Daily Telegraph

'The secrets to finding love have been revealed: choose someone who had few colds as a child, have ugly friends and when online dating, show your paunch. Mathematicians have come up with a series of formulae and theories that also prove that your right partner will pop along at the age of 22' --The Times
