    ePUB David Blatner ✓ ✓ The Joy of Pi Epub Ý The Joy Epub / The Joy book, The Joy of Pi ePUBThere is a lot of very interesting information presented in David Blatner's The Joy of Pi but it is well hidden behind a precipitous writing style and the worst graphics and design work ever presented in a general science book But then why four stars?Well this one little tidbit alone was worth the price of admission The height of an elephant from foot to shoulder euals 2 x Pi x the diameter of the elephants foot This is just one example of how Blatner attempts to show his audience how intrinsic and real and relevant Pi is to the everyday world And he does it with a type of bombastic style and confident fun oftentimes not seen in general science booksWell at least it is fun for the first seventy five pages or so In the final chapters of the book Blatner falls into a twenty plus page flame of cyclometers ie mathematical diletantes who are still trying to suare the circle if you don't know what this means then you really need to read the book His diatribe includes than a dozen cal

    ePUB David Blatner ✓ ✓ The Joy of Pi Epub Ý The Joy Epub / The Joy book, The Joy of Pi ePUBThis little book tells us in a cheerful manner about the history and snippets of the number pi the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter Many facts and factoids about pi are collected here There are some euations but those who don't like euations can appreciate them like beautiful illustrationsIn the section Memorizing Pi the author gives mnemonic devices in different languages The description of one in Japanese includes errors In fact there is a better one in Japanese which goes San i shi 314 i ko ku 159 ni 2 mu ko 65 San go 35 ya ku 89 na ku 79 down to the 1000th digit in a version These Japanese words mean An obstetrician goes to a foreign country After childbirth without misfortune The present reviewer told the author about the errors and the better mnemo

    ePUB David Blatner ✓ ✓ The Joy of Pi Epub Ý The Joy Epub / The Joy book, The Joy of Pi ePUBThis book contains the first million digits of pi At first this is intriguing but after a hundred digits or so it gets a little tedious and after the first thousand it's a struggle Nonetheless I got to the conclusion and was pleasantly surprised to find out the last digit was 1Seriously this is a fun book filled with interesting facts about this transcendental number It is a history of the struggles to find this number with greater and greater precision but it is also a grab bag of other material showing pi's ability to show up in unlikely placesThe prese

    ePUB David Blatner ✓ ✓ The Joy of Pi Epub Ý The Joy Epub / The Joy book, The Joy of Pi ePUBI found out about this book through the Pithe movie website I've had an interest in numerology and mathematics all my life and this coffee book definitely tickles my fancy in both departments It's entertaining and intelligent Be forewarned though it's ripe with purely fun facts and basic history For those true math nuts it may be lacking in a few areas If you're interested in a light read simply to gain and few interesting facts from and have a neat conversation piece then this is what you're looking for If you're looking for a in depth study then this might not be for you Another thing to keep in mind is that it's not very recently published as in the facts are out of date and would obviously be lacking recent insight
