LoveReading View on By the Numbers 230.333 Cool Stats and Figures

November 2015 Fascinating Facts Book of the Month Numbers are like magic keys to the world’s most exciting things, says Jer Thorp, one of a number of cool people working in maths and numbers interviewed for By the Numbers. That’s certainly the line the book takes, presenting page after page of numbers that amaze and inform us equally. For example, 7 billion people live on Earth and, to give that some sort of perspective, it would take 200 years to count to 7 billion out loud. Different information graphics help bring the numbers to life, so that readers understand the story behind them, and the book explains what infographics is all about too. You’ll look at numbers in a whole new way! ~ Andrea Reece
