Description

Maths is everywhere, often where we don't even realise.

In The Joy of X, Strogatz explains the great ideas of maths - from negative numbers to calculus, fat tails to infinity - with clarity, wit and insight.

He is the maths teacher you never had and this book is perfect for the smart and curious, the expert and the beginner.
