Product Description

Johnny Ball has masterminded and presented more than 20 children's television series about maths and science. He is best known for the hit BBC series Think of a Number, which transformed maths for a generation of children. A former Butlins redcoat and comedian, Johnny presented Playschool for 17 years and has earned an EMMY nomination, a BAFTA, and 10 other awards. A Fellow of the Mathematical Association, Johnny has written five children's books and the hit educational musical "Tales and Maths and Legends".

Popular television presenter Johnny Ball shares his love of maths and the essential part numbers play in our lives, from measuring, counting, and predicting to solving all sorts of problems.

But maths isn't just about counting and calculations. In All about Numbers, you'll explore a fantastic world that is full of surprises. Learn how to crack codes and unravel mazes, and discover why finding a prime number can make you a millionaire. Impress your friends with magic tricks and mind-reading techniques, and find out about the simple puzzles that have stumped the world's brainiest mathematicians for centuries.

With a colourful and quirky design, All about Numbers also includes fun and humorous facts that many math books leave out, such as why a flea can jump higher than an elephant and why zero doesn't always mean "nothing". You'll also discover how maths evolved throughout history, from the first counting system in ancient Iraq to the complex maths the Egyptians used to build the pyramids.

Let Johnny Ball show you how maths can take you anywhere - to infinity and beyond.
