Relax: no one understands technical mathematics without lengthy training but we all have an intuitive grasp of the ideas behind the symbols. This book is designed to showcase the beauty of mathematics - including images inspired by mathematical problems - together with its unreasonable effectiveness and applicability, without frying your brain. It contains articles by some of the best expositors of the subject (Marcus du Sautoy, Simon Singh and Ian Stewart, for
example) together with entertaining biographical pieces and articles of relevance to our everyday lives (David Spiegelhalter on risk and Richard Elwes on medical imaging, for example). Read this book and
Pythagoras will never seem the same.
