Not your usual book. Part autobiography, part commentary or history even. There are plenty of interesting factoid gems in the narrative and Daniel (also narrator) seems to have had some interesting times in his life which is dominated with numbers and his relationship to them.
I was surprised at how well the abstract concepts of numbers are articulated and relayed. I took a lot of new insight from the book and have quite honestly despite years of having been taught maths up to undergraduate level, never encountered someone that delivers this understanding so well! This book completely changed my relationship with Pi and it probably will do for you too!
Definitely a refreshing alternative to whatever your usual genre is!

Would you consider the audio edition of Thinking in Numbers to be better than the print version?
I would prefer to read but listening saves time.
Which character – as performed by Daniel Tammet – was your favourite?
He himself. I was fascinated by his line of reasoning and making connections which I would never thought of.
