Release Notes

Some topics in advanced mathematics require nothing more than arithmetic and
common sense. How the Other Half Thinks makes use of this phenomenon to offer
both the mathematically adept and mathematical beginner eight fascinating
illustrations of the mathematical way.

Each chapter starts with a question about strings made up of nothing more than
two letters. This question in turn suggests thought-provoking problems. After
these problems are explored and solved, the author shows how the related
mathematics has been applied in areas as varied as computers, cellphones,
measurement of astronomical distances, and cell growth.

An experienced educator, prize-winning expositor, and researcher, Stein
engagingly presents each concept. The leisurely pace allows a reader to move
slowly through each chapter, omitting no steps. This approach makes complex
concepts like topology, set theory, and probability accessible and exciting. The
book creates a bridge across the gulf between the two cultures: humanities and
the sciences.

Stein shows how the mathematical style of thinking is one that everyone can use
to understand the world. This charming book speaks to both those who employ the
intuitive, creative right half of the brain, and to those who rely more on the
analytical, numerical left half. How the Other Half Thinks is for the novice and
the skilled, the poet and the scientist, the left-brained and the right-brained.
When you read this book, you are immersed in the world of mathematics, not as a
spectator, but as an involved participant.
