La description:

Have you ever wondered why you always seem to get stuck in the longest line? Why two's company but three's a crowd? Or why there are six degrees of separation instead of seven? Mathematics can reveal things about our surprisingly complex world that just can't be learned in any other way. In this hugely informative and endlessly entertaining book, eminent cosmologist and writer John D. Barrow takes the most baffling of everyday phenomena-from the odds of winning the lottery to the physics of sobriety tests and the reasoning behind divorce settlements-and explains why things work the way they do. With simple math, lucid explanations, and accompanying illustrations, he sheds light on the dark and shadowy corners of the world we all think we understand so well.
