About this product
- Description'A WITTY BOOK THAT PROVOKES THE IMAGINATION' The Times How many socks make a pair? The answer is t always two. And behind this question lies a world of maths that can be surprising, amusing and even beautiful. Using playing cards, a newspaper, the back of an envelope, a Sudoku, some pennies and of course a pair of socks, Rob Eastaway shows how maths can demonstrate its secret beauties in even the most mundane of everyday objects. If you already like maths you'll discover plenty of new surprises. And if you've never picked up a maths book in your life, this one will change your view of the subject forever.

He appears regularly on radio and has given talks about maths across the UK, at venues ranging from the Theatre Royal, Bath to Pentonville Prison (one place where he could guarantee a captive audience). He was President of the Mathematical Association from 2007-8. He is married with three young children.
