[Book Rec] How Not To Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking

Posted September 14, 2018 in Inspiration, Links

I now realize my historic aversion to math is due to bad math education. Math is so cool, and I want to learn more of it…thanks to the book How Not to Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking by Jordan Ellenberg (and recommended by my behavioral economist brother).

I’m only about a 1/4 of the way through and so thrilled with what I’ve learnt so far that it deserves a blog post. It’s an eye opener regarding how “things” work (and don’t work…there’s a lot of “true but false” information out there). It’s written in very entertaining and readable language, makes my morning bus ride a pleasure.
