This review is from: How Not to be Wrong: The Hidden Maths of Everyday Life (Kindle Edition)
Have just finished this book and am mightily impressed. Jordan Ellenberg has written a book that informs, entertains and enlightens. Some of the ground he covers I thought I was familiar with, but he produces new gems that surprised and delighted me. I learned new and fascinating things about, for example, Daniel Ellsberg, David Foster Wallace and Thomas Pynchon
Jordan Ellenberg is not only a (very) good mathematician; he is also a first class writer who has some important things to say and knows how to say them.
