Short Synopsis
Eddie Woo, one of the world's top ten teachers and a YouTube phenom, delivers a rollicking, must-listen pop-math book.

Full Synopsis
Why aren't left-handers extinct? What makes a rainbow round? How is a pancreas . . . like a pendulum?

These may not look like math questions, but they are—because they all have to do with patterns. And mathematics, atheart, is the study of patterns.

That realization changed Eddie Woo's life—by turning the "dry" subject he dreaded in high school into a boundless quest for discovery. Now an award-winning math teacher, Woo sees patterns everywhere: in the "branches" of blood vessels and lightning, in the growth of a savings account and a sunflower, even in his morning cup of tea!

Here are twenty-six bite-size chapters on the hidden mathematical marvels that encrypt our email, enchant our senses, and even keep us alive—from the sine waves we hear as "music" to the mysterious golden ratio.

This book will change your mind about what math can be. We are all born mathematicians—and It's a Numberful World.
