It tells of the remarkable stories that have shaped mathematics and also features sections on how maths can be used to solve the mysteries of the universe, what the Prisoner’s Dilemma is as well as Fermat’s Last Theorem amongst many more.

Accessible, well-informed and fully-illustrated, this is a book that shows perfectly just how varied and fascinating mathematics is as a subject.
