All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Annotation: In order to understand the universe you must know the language in which it is written. And that language is mathematics.
- Galileo (1564-1642)

For hundreds of thousands of years, we have sought order in the apparent chaos of the universe. Mathematics has been our most valuable tool in that search, uncovering the patterns and rules that govern our world and beyond. How the World Works: Mathematics serves as a brilliant introduction to the history and enigmas of this vast discipline, plotting a journey from innumerate cave-dwellers, through the towering mathematical intellects of the last 4,000 years, to the breakthroughs of today.

This book includes:
Accessible explanations of mathematical principles, such as chaos theory and set theory
Profiles of famed and lesser-known mathematicians, including Pythagoras, Descartes and Madhava of Sangamagrama
Quirky facts and anecdotes
A useful glossary of mathematical terms

ABOUT THE SERIES: How the World Works is an illustrated series by Arcturus Publishing. Each book provides an engaging introduction to a branch of human knowledge, outlining key principles and charting its development across history up to the present day.
