    Lightbulb Pendragon's top three math books for innumerates

    Are you bad at math or innumerate but think you should be better or want to be better ?

    Try these three books :

    "Innumeracy : Mathematical Illiteracy and its Consequences" by John Allen Paul Paulos

    "How not to be wrong : The Power of Mathematical Thinking" by Jordan Ellenberg

    "Mathematics for the million : How to Master The Magic of Numbers" by Lancelot Hogben

    These are not meant to make you a mathematician, however, there are other rare less popular books for that.

    I will not provide links for pirating but you can find all these books on Amazon of course.

    'I am a Scotsman', Sir Walter Scott once famously wrote, ' therefore I had to fight my way into the world'.

    "Of all the small nations of this earth, perhaps only the ancient Greeks surpass the Scots in their contribution to mankind.” --Winston Churchill(England)

    "We look to Scotland for all our ideas of civilisation.” --Voltaire(France)

    “And, furthermore, that some people have a sex life and others don’t just because some are more attractive than others. I wanted to acknowledge that if people don’t have a sex life, it’s not for some moral reason, it’s just because they’re ugly. Once you’ve said it, it sounds obvious, but I wanted to say it.” — Michel Houellebecq
