Not the 'mystery' I was expecting.....
on 8 May 2013
When I bought this book, I was attracted to title 'The Secret Lives of Numbers' and the 'mysterious stories are exposed'. I didn't have any more information at the time of ordering and from the title, I presumed it would be about mystical theories and superstitions behind numbers such as with the master numbers. The book instead, gives more logical reasons for things such as: why we have a leap day, E-numbers, Gold carats, Dart-board design etc. It IS informative in it's own right (albeit briefly), but for a different reason than I was expecting and wanting :(
