Man vs Maths explains the complexities of the mathematics of modern life, showing how understanding a little more maths can improve your life and how to use it to your advantage. Plus along the way you'll discover how social media trends work, why the universe has a favourite number and what this means for you.

Mathematics is inescapable. Wherever you go, whatever you do, however you live your life, mathematics plays an important role. From controlling a city's traffic to finding love, spending money online to building a skyscraper, the mathematics at play in our world is fascinating. Yet despite its ubiquity, for many of us, how the maths of today really works remains complex.

Mathematician Timothy Revell distills these complexities in this essential guide to modern-day mathematics, exploring questions such as; Could we solve queuing with an equation? How do algorithms control our news? What is the secret behind encryption codes?
