The Life-Changing Magic of Numbers How Maths Can Make Life Better

Review From User :

This book is an excellent read if you are a a fan of Bobby Seagull's work or have enjoyed watching him on University Challenge or Monkman & Seagull's Genius Guide to Britain.

In this book Bobby explores how fundamental mathematical concepts can aid the average person with many aspects of their day to day lives. The maths of football, friendships and finances are all out on display in this easy to read yet enjoyable book.

Bobby prefaces many chapters of this book with stories of his own life, examples including his time on The Weakest Link (I didn't know he'd been on there either) or his match day routine prior to watching West Ham at their old Boleyn Ground.

This book would be an ideal read for younger people who are asking the question 'Why do I need to know maths after I finish secondary school' Bobby quickly expels the myth of maths just being another grade on a 16 year old's GCSE grading sheet in just under 300 fun packed pages.
