Promotional Information

Award-winning Steven Strogatz, one of the foremost popularisers of maths, has written a witty and fascinating account of maths' most compelling ideas and how, so often, they are an integral part of everyday life.

About the Author

Steven Strogatz is the professor of applied mathematics at Cornell University. A renowned teacher, and one of the world's most highly-cited mathematicians, he received MIT's E.M. Baker Award, the only institute-wide teaching prize selected solely by students. He is the author of several textbooks, as well as the bestseller Sync and The Calculus of Friendship. He lives in Ithaca, New York, with his wife Carole and their two daughters.

Reviews

The format works brilliantly because The Joy of X's bite-size chapters can be read, chewed over and digested independently... Strogatz exhibits a journalistic eye for startling facts and memorable illustrations... the perfect maths lesson: lucid, illuminating and short * Daily Telegraph *
For those who feel insecure with symbols and formulae, the books is delightfully wordy... [it] offer[s] gloriously simple proof of Pythagoras' Theorem * Daily Express *
