Abstract:

By popular demand, Australia's funniest and most famous mathematician is back with a brilliant new book. Adam Spencer's World of Numbers takes the reader on a funfilled ride, explaining the crucial role numbers play in our understanding of sport and space, computers and cooking, and a whole lot in between. With his trademark wit, Adam decodes barcodes, explains why we say 'as sixes and sevens' when we're discombobulated - and works out if there really a word in the English language with 189,819 letters! This is a book for readers of all ages who love numbers, or just love to laugh and learn about the wonderful world we live in.
