Review: The Triumph of Numbers: How Counting Shaped Modern LifeUser Review - Jo Oehrlein - Goodreads
This book is about how numbers, especially statistics, came to importance in every day life. It follows the history of numbers as they grow to importance. There's not a lot of actual math here, but the history itself is fairly interesting, although it took me a while to get into the book. Read full review
Review: Triumph Of NumbersUser Review - Goodreads
It's amazing but this book just opens our consciousness to the realization that our world has been ruled by numbers and we have been unconsciously dealing with them.
