Publisher's Summary

William Goldbloom Bloch is a respected professor of mathematics at Wheaton College. This intriguing lecture series, Mathematics Is Power, delves into both the history of mathematics and its impact on people’s everyday lives from a non-mathematician’s perspective. Bloch first examines the history of mathematics and age-old questions pertaining to logic, truth, and paradoxes. Moving on to a discussion of how mathematics impacts the modern world, Bloch also explores abstract permutations such as game theory, cryptography, and voting theory.

maths is a challenging subject to convey by audio

However this is a very good audio book if you want to know more about the general history of different branches of maths and get an overview of their concepts.

It is good for understanding the bigger picture. Less good if cannot visualise some of the concepts described. So some learners will struggle.
