Revue de presse

"A delightful, diverse collection of essays. Great fun and the perfect gift for any math-phobic person, young or old." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Tammet is a master of gleaning profound insights from seemingly mundane trivia...This is a delightful book." --Publishers Weekly (starred and boxed review)

"Whether or not readers consider themselves mathematically inclined, they will be enthralled. This book will charm just about anyone." --Library Journal (starred review)

"A mind-expanding, kinetic aesthetic experience. Tammet's poetic mathematics are beautiful guideposts for thinking about life and even love." --Amy Tan

"A engrossing blend of autobiography, mathematical theory, and 'what if' speculations, Daniel Tammet's essays allow us to see the world through the lens of numbers. The result is fascinating, even dizzying series of fresh perspectives on things we thought we knew." --Billy Collins

"Always informative, always entertaining, Daniel Tammet never loses his respect for the mystery of the universe of number." --J. M. Coetzee

"How many mathematicians are dazzling storytellers as well? What a joy to read an author whose dexterity with digits is matched by his wisdom with words." --David Eagleman, PhD, neuroscientist, author of Incognito and Sum

"Intriguing, provocative - to wrestle with numbers in this way is an adventure." --Lydia Davis, author of The Collected Stories of Lydia Davis

"Thinking in Numbers is a magnificently, movingly peculiar and wise book." --Kurt Andersen, author of True Believers and host of Studio 360

"With Einsteinian elegance, Tammet recasts our perceptions of the human experience in this extraordinary collection of essays. His remarkable talent for expression--for enlightening, moving, and transforming his reader--reveals a rare combination of ingenuity and artistry." --David Finch, author of The Journal of Best Practices

Présentation de l'éditeur

This is the book that Daniel Tammet, bestselling author and mathematical savant, was born to write. In Tammet's world, numbers are beautiful and mathematics illuminates our lives and minds. Using anecdotes and everyday examples, Tammet allows us to share his unique insights and delight in the way numbers, fractions and equations underpin all our lives.
Inspired by the complexity of snowflakes, Anne Boleyn's sixth finger or his mother's unpredictable behaviour, Tammet explores questions such as why time seems to speed up as we age, whether there is such a thing as an average person and how we can make sense of those we love.
Thinking in Numbers will change the way you think about maths and fire your imagination to see the world with fresh eyes.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating and insightful collection of essays 12 septembre 2013
Par Jessica McCann - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
When it comes to math and numbers, generally speaking, I am not a fan. I'm a word girl. And yet, in THINKING IN NUMBERS, Daniel Tammet has found a way to help me appreciate the complexity, the magic and, yes, even the beauty he sees in numbers. Early on in this book of essays, Tammet put math into terms I could understand.

"Like works of literature," he wrote on page 10, "mathematical ideas help expand our circle of empathy, liberating us from the tyranny of a single, parochial point of view. Numbers, properly considered, make us better people." While I wasn't quite yet sold that numbers make us better people, I was intrigued by the analogy and compelled to keep reading.

Tammet is an autistic savant (one who broke the world record for reciting from memory more than 22,500 digits of Pi), and some of his essays are pretty heady. I'll admit, he lost me in a few of them, and I was forced to skim. My brain simply could not wrap around some of his ideas. As a person inspired by words and art, I was most drawn to his essays that related math to those elements.

In "Book of Books," Tammet examines the process of novel writing and the infinite possibilities and configurations the author must consider, much like a mathematical equation. And he introduced me to a novel by Julio Cortazar, titled Hopscotch, with a unique structure that enables readers make their own sense of the story. One can read the chapters consecutively from beginning to end, or in reverse order. One can read only the even numbered chapters, or only the prime numbered ones. And each reader will experience a different story. Wow. As a writer, and as a reader, this mathematical concept of a novel structure blew my mind.

Many of Tammet's essays were thought provoking, some were whimsical. All offered a unique glimpse into the mind of someone who thinks and views the world in ways far different than I. If you love math, or if you enjoy gaining new perspectives on familiar aspects in life, I highly recommend THINKING IN NUMBERS.

p.s. I also have read, enjoyed and recommend Tammet's memoir, BORN ON A BLUE DAY.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating book about numbers in everyday life 4 septembre 2013
Par Susan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Loved this book. I had read "Born on a Blue Day", Tammet's first book and enjoyed it. This new one has chapters on various topics, all relating to the importance of understanding how numbers affect our lives, ranging from chess to the concept of and words for numbers in different cultures. The chapters are short. Fun read for number nerds and for those who think they are math illiterate.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I couldn't put it down... 2 août 2013
Par CM777 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I'm an acrostic puzzle constructor, and had merely planned to skim this book for a possible quotation solution for one of my puzzles. Instead, I found it so engrossing I couldn't put it down.

Not only is there a puzzle-worthy quotation in just about every chapter (I'm going to have a hard time choosing just one!), Tammet's book is fascinating, and downright poetic at times.

If you're looking for a mathematics text, this is not the book for you. This book is about the beauty of numbers, and a way of thinking about them that opens up a world of infinite possibilities.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 What a talent . . . 16 septembre 2013
Par Sam, Atlanta - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
One cannot read this book, which has something about which to marvel on every page, and come away thinking that Daniel Tammet's diagnosis of "high-functioning autistic savant syndrome" is in any way a disability. His brilliance and curiosity aside, he holds insights into human nature that give one pause and reason to re-read and re-read. What a genuine talent.
