Abstract:

"One of the principal messages of Life By The Numbers is that mathematics permeates virtually all of our lives, and that people can be motivated to learn mathematics via things they find interesting, be that special effects in movies and educational films, the miracle of the internet, the history of art, the wonders of cosmology, the pitfalls of gambling, sports analysis, building better boats, map making, flight simulation, national surveys, wearable computers, modelling international economies, DNA, life insurance, playing chess on the surface of a doughnut, or the chances of being attacked by giant locusts!"--Review by Colm Mulcahy, MAA web site (Dec 2006).
