Synopsis

Even the most enthusiastic of maths students probably at one time wondered when exactly it would all prove useful in 'real life'. Well, maths reaches so far and wide through our world that, love it or hate it, we're all doing maths almost every minute of every day.

David Darling and Agnijo Banerjee go in search of the perfect labyrinth, journey back to the second century in pursuit of 'bubble maths', reveal the weirdest mathematicians in history and transform the bewildering into the beautiful, delighting us once again. 

About the Publisher

Oneworld

Oneworld

Oneworld was founded in 1986 by husband and wife team Juliet Mabey and Novin Doostdar as an independent publishing house focusing on stimulating non-fiction. Now publishing over 100 books a year, Oneworld has retained its founding commitment to the old-fashioned principles of great writing, editorial excellence, high production values, and marketing flair, to produce books that are read by the intellectually curious all over the world. Our fiction list showcases intelligent, challenging, and distinctive novels that sit at the intersection of the literary and the commercial: emotionally engaging stories with strong narratives and distinctive voices. In addition to being beautifully written, we hope our novels play their part in introducing the reader to a different culture or an interesting historical period/event, and deeply explore the human condition in all its vagaries. We aim to publish novels that matter, that stay with you long after the last page is turned.
