“This book is easy to understand and very readable. I very much enjoyed the author’s ability to use fables to explain mathematical concepts, he does manage to capture the reader’s attention right from the beginning.”
“I personally love the unabashed connection to morality, what you should do versus what you can do, which rarely shows up in books today.”
“The key strength is in the description of the problems that greed has created, and the impact that has on our physical and social environment. Equipping students with the knowledge to look at statistical reports on the economy, for example, and to be skeptical and know that there is more to the story in the numbers is very valuable, and could help make better consumers.”
“The key strengths of the text are the numerous examples and stories related to connecting political, economic, cultural, scientific, and mathematical concepts. Some stories are classic tales, some are current events, and others are hypothetical situations that all make the reader think and provide excellent visual matter.”
“The author does a good job demystifying some pretty sophisticated mathematical concepts through the use of engaging and entertaining examples.”
“Students…benefit from an understanding of the role of statistical analysis, probability and calculus in governmental systems, historical trending and political prediction. The text encourages readers to consider the larger implications of fundamental mathematical concepts.”
