Présentation de l'éditeur

The world of maths can seem mind-boggling, irrelevant and, let's face
it, boring. This groundbreaking book reclaims maths from the geeks.
Mathematical ideas underpin just about everything in our lives: from the
surprising geometry of the 50p piece to how probability can help you
win in any casino. In search of weird and wonderful mathematical
phenomena, Alex Bellos travels across the globe and meets the world's
fastest mental calculators in Germany and a startlingly numerate
chimpanzee in Japan. Packed with fascinating, eye-opening anecdotes, Alex's Adventures in Numberland is an exhilarating cocktail of history, reportage and mathematical proofs that will leave you awestruck.

Pour un cout très modeste, ce livre donne de nombreuses études mathématiques. Seul problème, la police utilise de très petit caractère, il faut avoir une vision convenable. Il reste 450 pges de thèmes mathématiques intéressant

HASH(0x9bdf0f84) étoiles sur 5 Great book, but beware it is sold under two different titles 6 janvier 2012
Par Cambridge1 - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I bought this book for my 11 year-old son who loves math. He was very excited to see it because last year he read a book by the same author entitled "Here's Looking at Euclid" and loved it. Entertaining, thought-provoking, thoroughly engaging. Then he started to read and it became apparent that "Alex's Adventures in Numberland" and "Here's Looking at Euclid" are the same book sold under two different titles. Buy one or the other and you won't be disappointed, just don't buy both.

This is an absolutely delightful and entertaining book. Great if you like math but intriguing even if math doesn't come easy. Each chapter takes you on a journey exploring worlds you may never knew existed. It is written in an engaging style that keeps you interested even when the math gets a bit overwhelming. Would recommend to anyone with average or above average intelligence and curiosity.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes numbers, and maths. The book is, quite frankly, a delight to read. Alex starts with simple concepts in each chapter, and gradually takes you through more complex concepts. It is, at first glance, a simple book to read. However, it needs careful reading in order to fully understand all the concepts. The best part, however, is that you can come back to individual chapters and read them again.

HASH(0x9d60a4a4) étoiles sur 5 Fun read. 24 juillet 2013

While the level of the book is relatively simple as books on math go there was still many interesting things to learn. It is a great book to pass on to friends and relatives that are not familiar with mathematics. In addition to some interesting math there are a some splendid stories. Highly recommended to all.

HASH(0x9d60a504) étoiles sur 5 Every journey needs a map 16 novembre 2014
Par Mr P R Morgan - Publié sur
Format: Broché
It is as it says on the tin! This is a wide-ranging journey through some of the everyday situations that we see around us that have to do with numbers. These range through gambling (casino wheels, lotteries), Sudoku, abacus practitioners and Pythagoras triangles to the perfect shape for teeth. Add to this the meaning of infinity, and how one infinite number can be bigger than another, and you get the idea that this is a tour through some of the complexities and simplicities of numbers, number theory and how this impacts our life.

If you can get non-mathematicians (or rather non-number loving people) to read this book, and get say past the first 30 or 40 pages, they will learn something. The key may be getting them this far. However, Alex Bellos shows his enthusiasm shine through the pages. The real-life stories behind, for example, abacus whizz-kids may, just may promote similar excitement in readers. But this is not just surface froth – Bellos really does know what he is talking about, and the stories are a result of some extensive travelling.

Numbers and mathematics are not ‘boring’. Perhaps for too long it has been presented the wrong way in some of our schools and colleges. Pi, algebra, geometry and slide rules are not only explained by Bellos, but more to the point illustrated. This gives insight, but because of the explanation AND illustration, it also gives excitement.

Let me be clear. Reading this book will not make you a better Sudoku solver, or increase your winnings in a betting shop. However, it may open your eyes to the way in which mathematics invades everything in our lives, even areas that do not seem to be ‘mathematical’. What has a perfect smile got to do with maths? I’ll leave you to figure that out, guided by Bellos’ excellent book.

And as a final thought, followers of Lewis Carroll may be attracted to the book because of the deliberate pun in the title, alluding to the title of the mathematician Rev Charles Dodgson’s best known title – Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
