Is there a mathematician in the house?

Adrián Paenza

NON FICTION. SUDAMERICANA, 2018. 336 PAGES

Maths is everywhere; even if we can't see it, and it's available to everyone. When you take a selfie and it's immediately saved to the cloud, every time you buy a plane ticket or even when you bake a cake. In this book, Adrián Paenza invites us to look for the maths hidden in the nooks and crannies of everyday life. 
It presents a series of wacky problems where love gets tangled up with technology, acrobats with poison, chickens with eggs and Twitter with Snapchat, showing us how to deduce which cards Messi and Ronaldo would choose, how to know when someone's lying, why two plus two can equal three, how to catch a thousand yellow fish and other extraordinary unsolved problems from throughout history. Because not everything can be solved in just one way.
