Summary

Delving into the interesting, amusing and often bizarre lore of numbers, this intriguing book uncovers the numbers that have shaped our history and culture, from ancient Babylon to the present day.

Light-hearted and entertaining, but chock-full of fascinating and little-known detail, here you'll find the origins of many well-worn numeric words and phrases, explanations of numbers in art and popular culture, and numbers of religious and mythical significance and the superstitions surrounding them.

As Easy as Pi goes 'the whole nine yards' and celebrates the real value of the numbers we all know and love.
