Summary
A hilarious, enlightening romp through the world of numbers with one of Australia's best-loved broadcasters. Why do people get freaked out by Friday the 13th? Where does a dozen come from? Who was Erno Rubik? And how do you become a master at Sudoku? In 100 bite-sized chapters, mathematician, broadcaster and comedian Adam Spencer unlocks more of the secrets of the world of numbers. If you've ever wondered about the a fourth dimension, why spider monkeys have so many bones in their hands, which numbers are truly narcissistic, or how on earth you play a Buckyballa, Adam Spencer's Big Book of Numbers will set you straight.
