About the book:

A lighthearted tour through 49 of the most interesting and useful mathematical formulas ever derived

Both entertaining and practical, it reaches a level of sophistication consistently high enough to make intelligent people think, but never aims so high that it is difficult to follow. Accompanying the formulas are over 70 amusing cartoons and diverting stories that point up how everyday events can lead to fundamental mathematical insights.

* Proves that math is fun, functional and accessible--not an arcane subject reserved for specialists
