Humble Pi: When Math Goes Wrong in the Real World
by Matt Parker
What happens when math goes wrong in the real world? In this hilarious book, stand-up comedian and mathematician Matt Parker explores the glitches, near misses, and mathematical mishaps involving the internet, big data, elections, street signs, lotteries, the Roman Empire, and an Olympic team. Learn about the bizarre ways that a misplaced decimal point upended the stock market, a unit conversion error caused a plane to crash, or when someone divided by zero and stalled a battleship in the middle of the ocean. Getting it wrong has never been more fun.
