Praise for Matt Parker and Humble Pi
"Parker is consistently very funny . . . . highly entertaining." --The Guardian "Parker has a sly wit. . . . A clever, amusing book about some of life's more serious problems; highly recommended." --Library Journal "A fascinating and deeply surprising journey into the hilarious and sometimes tragic realm of mathematical error. Brilliant." --Tim Harford, author of The Undercover Economist and Messy "[Matt Parker] shows off math at its most playful and multifarious." --Jordan Ellenberg, author of How Not to Be Wrong "Matt Parker is some sort of unholy fusion of prankster, wizard, and brilliant nerd--math is rarely this clever, funny, and ever so slightly naughty."--Adam Rutherford, author of Creation "A pleasant exploration of our deeply held incompetence at mathematics. . . . Fun reading for nonmathematicians." --Kirkus Reviews "Numbers to die for. Four stars." --Mail on Sunday "Matt Parker has pulled off something wonderful . . . his stories are superb." --The Daily Mail
