But could you dazzle your dinner guests with an account of how Fermat's Theorem was finally proved? And could you share your knowledge of Pi for dessert? 30-Second Maths is here to get your figures in trim, stripping the most complex mathematical theories down to two pages, 300 words and one picture. Whether you want to understand the key differences between an exponential and a logarithm or why there are different levels of infinity, this book will light a spark in those who found that maths froze their brains at school. Illuminated with inventive graphics, this unique volume also includes profiles of the finest thinkers in the history of number crunching. Read at your own pace and discover that maths can be truly magical and does not have to equal a numbed mind."--Cover.
