Description of this Book

Find love. Win at games and sport. Look smart. Save time. Lily Serna, a curious mathematician, believes passionately that 'mathematics is our golden key to unlocking the secrets of the universe'. She is on a quest to share her own sense of wonder about maths, and to leave all of us - even the maths phobic - with simple, mathematically proven insights to solve the most common problems of modern living, such as locating your keys, joining the fastest queue at the supermarket, planning the perfect dinner party, finding and keeping love, beating a soccer goalie or winning at games. Using a mix of simple psychology and the easy-to-understand logic of maths, Curious is warm, engaging and completely compelling.
