Man vs Maths: Understanding the curious mathematics that power our world by Timothy Revell

Could we solve queuing with an equation? How do algorithms control our news? What is the secret behind encryption codes?

Mathematics is inescapable. Wherever you go, whatever you do, however you live your life, mathematics plays a role.

From controlling a city's traffic to finding love, spending money online to building a skyscraper, the mathematics at play in our world is fascinating. Yet despite its ubiquity, for many of us, how the maths of today really works remains complex.

Timothy Revell distils these complexities in this essential guide to modern-day mathematics. Along the way we discover how social media trends work, why the universe has a favourite number and what this means for you.

Man vs Maths shows you how understanding a little more mathematics can help improve your life.
