Product description

Review

Singh blows the lid off a decades-long conspiracy to secretly educate cartoon viewers (David X Cohen, writer for The Simpsons and Futurama)

An entertaining picture of the insanely high-minded nature of the Simpsons' writers (Sunday Times)

Singh shows a knack for gliding seamlessly between abstract mathematical concepts and every day life, always seeking out the most engaging, human and topical examples. Singh's clean prose, detailed research and enthusiasm for the world of numbers are likely to captivate even those for whom maths normally creates feelings of anxiety rather than mirth (The Times)

A valuable, entertaining book that, above all, celebrates a supremely funny, sophisticated show (Financial Times)

What have Homer and Bart got to do with Euler's equation, the googolplex or the topology of doughnuts? ... Simon Singh has fun weaving great mathematics stories around our favourite TV characters (New Scientist)

Singh shows just how addictive maths can be (BBC Focus)

Book Description

From bestselling author of Fermat's Last Theorem, a must-have for number lovers and Simpsons fans
