The **book Humble Pi a comedy of maths errors PDF** answer to anyone who ever put their hand up in **math class** and asked, “When am I ever going to use this in the real world?”

“Fun, informative, and relentlessly entertaining, ** Humble Pi** is a charming and very readable guide to some of humanity’s all-time greatest miscalculations–that also gives you permission to feel a little better about some of your own mistakes.” —

**Ryan North**, author of

*How to Invent Everything*Our whole world is built on **math**, from the code running a website to the **equations** enabling the design of skyscrapers and bridges. Most of the time this **math works** quietly behind the scenes . . . until it doesn’t. All sorts of seemingly innocuous **mathematical mistakes** can have significant consequences.

**Math** is easy to ignore until a misplaced decimal point upends the stock market, a unit conversion error causes a plane to crash, or someone divides by zero and stalls a battleship in the middle of the ocean.

Exploring and explaining a litany of glitches, near misses, and **mathematical mishaps** involving the internet, big data, elections, street signs, lotteries, the Roman Empire, and an Olympic team, **Matt Parker** uncovers the bizarre ways math trips us up, and what this reveals about its essential place in our world. Getting it wrong has never been more fun.
