NOT light reading but a good read for Math/Science.
I thought it would be helpful for teaching Math next year but I have found better History of Math books. I did find a wealth of quotes I liked though and some thought provoking chapters. Of course Math doesn't explain ALL of life/the world. Like why my internet connection breaks down at the most inconvenient times or why some people dislike cats. Random things. Of course the people who want to win in Las Vegas should understand probability. And we all need to know how to balance the checkbook and pay taxes. Soon we can just send the paycheck to Washington and be done with it..
I liked the chapters on Quantum physics but I'm weird that way. Most won't like those chapters.
