Synopsis: Paperback. Pub Date :2013-01-17 Pages: 240 Language: English Publisher: Hodder Stoughton This is the book that Daniel Tammet. bestselling author and mathematical savant. was born to write. In Tammets world. numbers are beautiful and mathematics illuminates our lives and minds. Using anecdotes and everyday examples. Tammet allows us to share his unique insights and delight in the way numbers. fractions and equations underpin all our lives.Inspired by the complexity of snowflakes. Anne Boleyns sixth finger or his mothers unpredictable behaviour. Tammet explores questions such as why time seems to speed up as we age. whether there is such a thing as an average person and how we can make sense of those we love.Thinking in Numbers will change the way you think about maths and fire your imagination to see the world with fresh eyes.

Review: Thinking in Numbers is unprecedented: a pitch-perfect duet between mathematics and literature ... Mathematics, Tammet says, is illimitable. It is a language through which the human imagination expresses itself. Presumably this means mathematics has, or deserves, a literature. In Tammet, it already has a laureate. (New Scientist)

A collection of essays on subjects as diverse as Shakespeare and Tolstoy, a rumination on snow and another on chess, as well as a fantastically nuanced piece about his mother. It is a collection which showcases Tammet's extraordinary talent . . . a writer of unique capabilities. (Scotsman Magazine)

An interesting and often beautiful approach: Tammet writes well... and his love of numbers shines from the page... Tammet's discussion of big numbers is fascinating. (Daily Telegraph)

Tammet's choice of subjects is personal, and wonderfully eclectic... What lifts Tammet's entertaining collection above the ordinary are the often surprising links that he sees, explores and explains. (Sunday Telegraph)

Explores the 'what if' of maths and links it with literature and life. He is an exhilarating thinker, an exciting writer, and looks at the world with an eclectic, quizzical eye. (Saga magazine)

Tammet is an accomplished writer with a prose style akin to a warm embrace... scintillating ... enlightens and entertains in (approximately) equal measure. (Daily Express)

When he talks about his own extreme skills, such as his feat of pi memorisation, the book comes alive. (BBC Focus)

Daniel Tammet's unique take on the world will prove that life - not just classroom maths - is more than just a numbers game. (Gay Times)

As fluid with words as with numbers, his essays are artfully constructed: intriguing openings to entice us; interesting snippets of history; accessible but unpatronising tones; neat endings. (Independent)

In Tammet's mind, literature, art and maths are united. For him, maths' real-life applications are not merely tax returns and restaurant bills, but the storytelling of an infinite subject and the reasoning behind our daily existence. (The Huffington Post)
