Shortcuts. there is an art to them. Mathematics is full of shortcuts - little ways to think better; faster, more effectively and just, well, clearer.
With over 2000 years of thinking to draw on Marcus du Sautoy delves into his passion for shortcuts in this fresh and facinating guide. He brings us on a tour of artists, scientists, and entrepreneurs who all use mathematical shortcuts to change the world and illistrates some of the world’s greatest neat dodges, unexpected turns and useful cut-throughs with humour and clarity, showing us how we should celebrate maths and it's ability to let us do more with less.
