# Woo's wonderful world of Maths by Eddie Woo

Macmillan, 2018. ISBN 9781760554217

Themes: Mathematics. This is not a conventional book about Maths
which would normally have more numbers than letters. In fact, there
aren't a lot of numbers in this book. Rather, it is a collection of
essays which explain the way Maths is used in life.

The book looks at the way in which Maths is really all about
patterns rather than about numbers. It explains concepts such as how
a computer works, the golden sequence and the periodic table of
numbers.

Woo builds impressive cases for the explanation of Maths in our
lives, but this may not be an easy book to digest if you are not
interested in the subject. Woo is enthusiastic in his storytelling,
using card tricks, conspiracy theories, teacups and other phenomena
to plead his case.

Not for anyone who is Maths-phobic but will appeal to those who love
Maths!
