“How Not to Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking”
“How Not to Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking”

“The math we learn in school can seem like a dull set of rules, laid down by the ancients and not to be questioned. In How Not to Be Wrong, Jordan Ellenberg shows us how terribly limiting this view is: Math isn’t confined to abstract incidents that never occur in real life, but rather touches everything we do—the whole world is shot through with it.”
