We would all be better off if everyone saw mathematics as a practical ally. Sadly, most of us fear maths and seek to avoid it. Matt Parker explores what happens when maths errors make the everyday go horribly wrong. He explains near misses and mishaps with planes, bridges, the internet and big data as a way of showing us not only how important maths is, but how we can use it to our advantage. This comedy of errors is a brilliantly told series of disaster stories with a happy ending.
