    Description

    Alex’s Adventures in Numberland is a popular science book on the wonderful world of mathematics by Alex Bellos.

    Summary of the Book

    Maths must be one of the most terrifying subjects out there to laymen. It appears boring, and the calculations only make sense to mathematicians. In this book, Alex Bellos attempts to show how mathematicians can appear to be magicians with their intellect. He meets number crunching Germans who are experts at mental calculations. He also meets a numerically literate chimpanzee in Japan. This book collects amazing anecdotes, notes and reports which show readers how fun mathematics can be.

    Amazing book

    It takes reader through an amazing world of numbers. It very well explains how numbers evolved in different societies all the way up to discovery of infinities with different sizes. The book can be read by anyone with basic knowledge of mathematics.
