The Babylonians began it, the Greeks measured the Earth with it and in the
Middle Ages, men were burned for even mentioning it. In all civilizations, it's
had horrendous ups and downs, depending on whether science was seen as Progress
to be encouraged--or as Sin to be rooted out! Yet it doesn't seem so radical.
You look at a circle. You see that the 'around' (circumference) depends on the
'across' (diameter). And no matter how big the circle, the ratio between these
two is always the same. That's Pi! But the history of Pi, (i.e. the history of
maths), is a mirror of the history of Man. And this breezy book gives you the
whole fascinating story, from the first Stone Age tally stick to the latest
'intelligent' computers...with all the thinkers, builders, navigators, martyrs
and madmen along the way. Even if simple sums make you cross-eyed, this is one
math book that will charm you from cover to cover, by a man who is an electrical
engineer, a computer whiz and energy buff.
