    Inhaltsangabe

    Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Humble Pi, written and read by Matt Parker. 

    We would all be better off if everyone saw mathematics as a practical ally. Sadly, most of us fear maths and seek to avoid it. This is because mathematics doesn't have good 'people skills' - it never hesitates to bluntly point out when we are wrong. But it is only trying to help! Mathematics is a friend which can fill the gaps in what our brains can do naturally. 

    Luckily, even though we don't like sharing our own mistakes, we love to listen to tales about what happens when maths errors make the everyday go horribly wrong. Matt Parker explores and explains near misses and mishaps with planes, bridges, the internet and big data as a way of showing us not only how important maths is but how we can use it to our advantage. This comedy of errors is a brilliantly told series of disaster stories with a happy ending.

    Mathematical fun facts!

    I really enjoyed this book, it’s even my very first audiobook. The storytelling is very entertaining and gives a lot of information in an easy and understandable way. If you like to know a few pretty cool fun (and also some rather tragic) facts surrounding math problems - you have found your book! Only thing I’m missing is all the photos and graphs mentioned, would have been nice to get them as a pdf.

    A well written summary of (math) mistakes

    I, on purpose, placed the word Math within brackets.
    It is a summary of interesting and fun mistakes that are made by the people who should be the brightest among us.
    Of course, several of them already were known by me. But having these (known) anecdotes in this book, both validates that I was right to remember them but also having them be accompanied by other mistakes, will help me to retain the unknown mistakes for future discussiona.

    awful narrator

    It is painful to listen to, I didn't make it through.
    I usually liked the stories, but I started to dislike the reader after a couple of chapters.

    quite good.

    I quite enjoyed the book. I feel like I have known about many examples and anecdotes but the book was still worth Listening too and entertaining. I'm pretty sure at least two where featured in Tom Scott videos but I might have been mistaken. I'd recommend the book to a casual reader interested in maths or a big fan of Matt. A pdf accompanying the book would have been nice.

    Too much number reading

    Great book and great presentation, had lots of laugs. Only thing to improve would be to not always read the full number, but a rounding instead

    Fun and Educational

    Rating a 9.99999473847277588 out of 10. Initially I was worried because I had seen some of Matt Parkers videos and talks before, but the book was still totally worth to read even if a few bits here and there were repetition. Great job!

    Good entertainment

    It’s a very interesting book! I really enjoyed it. The author is really enthusiastic about it and it shows. The only downside is that now I am overly conscious every time I crossed a bridge.

    Dchönes Buch, leider ohne die Bilder

    Die Graphen und Bilder des Buches fehlen leider etwas. Ansonsten ein sehr schönes Audiobook. Der Sprecher ist zwar unerfahren aber ok.
