About this title

Synopsis:

Count the ways... Have you ever stopped to think how many countless ways we use numbers? From the ring of the alarm clock in the morning to the numbers triggering our cell phones, our world is designed with numbers in mind. With Easy as Pi, you'll get the 4-1-1 on the fascinating origin of many of the numbers we use or read about every day: ? What makes "cloud nine" and "seventh heaven" so blissful? ? Why is the number 7 so lucky and 13 so unlucky? ? Is "fourth-dimentional thinking" really out of this world? ? What prompted Ray Bradbury to call his novel Fahrenheit 451? ? How did 007 become James Bond's number? For the math averse: Be not afraid. Easy as Pi is not a textbook but rather a lively look at the derivation of numerical expressions and their inescapable influence on our culture-from book titles to bus schedules. To sum it up, Easy as Pi equals one clever and often hilarious collection.
