"You probably know acclaimed math teacher Eddie Woo through watching his excellent videos. . . . Well, now there is a book, and it's a winner. . . .

Praise from Australia

"Learning mathematics is like climbing the stairs of a skyscraper. . . . Some educators scream at us from a tenth-story window as we look up at them in confusion. Eddie greets you at the foyer and is there beside you while you take each and every step. . . . Eddie is more than just the math teacher we all wanted. Eddie is the math teacher we all need."--Simon Pampena, Australian numeracy ambassador

"Not just a great teacher, [It's a Numberful World] shows Eddie to be a storyteller, too. Is there anything the Woo cannot do?"--Adam Spencer, ambassador for mathematics, University of Sydney
