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.

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!

Lustiges Thema gut aufbereitet

Der Sprecher erklärt die zusammenhänge sehr gut, so dass kein Mathematische Verständnis vorausgesetzt ist. Betonung und Sprache ist auch sehr angenehm.

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.
