Editorial Reviews

Review

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
