'If people do not believe that mathematics is simple, it is only because they do not realize how complicated life is' - John von Neumann. Mathematics can tell you things about the world that can't be learned in any other way. This hugely informative and wonderfully entertaining little book answers one hundred essential questions about existence. It unravels the knotty, clarifies the conundrums and sheds light into dark corners. From winning the lottery, placing bets at the races and escaping from bears to sports, Shakepeare, Google, game theory, drunks, divorce settlements and dodgy accounting; from chaos to infinity and everything in between, "100 Essential Things You Didn't Know You Didn't Know" has all the answers!
