              Think math is boring? Think again! Numbers: How Counting Changed the World cracks open the history of numbers to explore the surprising, fascinating, and sometimes mind-boggling evolution of mathematics through the ages. Did you know that the division symbol is actually a dagger?... Or that something as simple as 1, 2, 3, nearly ended up breaking math for good? What is an imaginary number exactly? Numbers may seem simple on the surface but they will defy your imagination. Written to engage, entertain and enthuse readers young and old, Numbers: How Counting Changed the World takes an entirely new approach to the wonderful world of mathematics. Along the way, readers will meet the early geniuses who figured out what numbers are and what we could do with them. Theyll learn how numbers influence almost everything around us from the invention of the first computer, to the way we count and experience time itself. And theyll encounter strange and quirky stories about some of maths biggest names. From John Napier, the inventor of algorithms, who never went anywhere without his pet rooster, to Pythagoras, who just might have been a murderer, Numbers: How Counting Changed the World shows that there is much more to numbers than 1, 2, 3.

              Introducing the insights of the Buddha, universal and timeless inspiration for our search for true happiness. A deluxe cloth edition with a foil blocked sticker and a removable insight card so you can carry the Buddha s teachings everywhere you go, this beautifully packaged ...collection is the perfect gift for the wisdom seeker in your life. Beginning with the root of human suffering, or twelve-linked chain of causation, and ending with the transcendence of enlightenment, this carefully curated volume presents the great arch of Buddhist doctrine as told by its earliest practitioners, including the Buddha himself. My Teaching, said the Buddha, is about suffering and how to end it. Mirroring the 10 stages of the bodhisattva's path of awakening, the book's ten chapters take readers on a spiritual/philosophical journey through the Buddha s cycle of healing, from ignorance and suffering, to awareness and enlightenment. Combining extracts from the early Pali canon and the later Mahayana sutras, as well as traditional Buddhist tales, poignant Zen koans (riddles) and gorgeous atmospheric photographs all prefaced by an informative introduction that traces the history of Buddha s enduring teachings back to the life of the Gautama Buddha Teachings of the Buddha is a richly woven tapestry of wisdom, insight and expertise, and an indispensable volume for practicing Buddhists and beginners alike.
