Review

Matt Parker has pulled off something wonderful . . . his stories are superb. (Marcus Berkmann The Daily Mail)

Parker is consistently very funny . . . highly entertaining. (The Guardian)

Numbers to die for. Four stars. (Simon Griffith Mail on Sunday)

Bought it yesterday, enjoying it enormously, well done! (Dara Ó Briain Twitter)

I just finished the new book by irrepressible maths enthusiast @standupmaths, and it's GREAT! (Adam Savage, ex-host of 'Mythbusters' Twitter)

An entertaining and often alarming journey through the numerical blunders made over the years. (The Big Issue)

"[Matt Parker] shows off math at its most playful and multifarious" --Jordan Ellenberg, author of "How to Not Be Wrong (Jordan Ellenberg)

Matt Parker is some sort of unholy fusion of a prankster, wizard and brilliant nerd--maths is rarely this clever, funny and ever so slightly naughty. (Adam Rutherford, author of "Creation")
