Numericon : A Journey Through the Hidden Lives of Numbers Hardback


Numericon tells the stories of the numbers, mathematical discoveries, oddities and personalities that have shaped the way we understand the world around us.

Funny, bizarre, tragic and dramatic, these stories reveal the power, passion and beauty of mathematics.

Each chapter is an intriguing story about a number, including why 3 is strong, e is natural and Graham's number is too big to write.

Packed with quirky, informative facts and bound in a beautiful foil-blocked cover, this book will do for maths what The Etymologicon did for the English language.
