Jennifer Ouellette never took maths in the sixth form, mostly because she like most of us assumed she wouldnt need it much in real life. But then the English graduate, now an award-winning science-writer, had a change of heart and decided to revisit the equations and formulas that had haunted her youth. The Calculus Diaries is the fun and fascinating account of a year spent confronting her numbers-phobia head on. With wit and verve, Ouellette explains how she discovered that maths could apply to everything from petrol mileages to dieting, rollercoaster rides to winning in Las Vegas.

MEDIA REVIEWS
If, like me, you love the neatness of calculus but never appreciated its applications or the colourful characters who have used it through history, then these diaries are well worth a read * New Scientist *
I havent had this much fun learning maths since I watched the Count on Sesame Street when I was three. And the Count never talked about log flumes or zombies * The New York Times *
