    Jordan Ellenberg shows us that math isn't confined to abstract incidents that never occur in real life, but rather touches everything we do. Math allows us to see the hidden structures underneath the messy and chaotic surface of our world. It's a science of not being wrong, hammered out by centuries of hard work and argument. Armed with the tools of mathematics, we can see through to the true meaning of information we take for granted. How Not to Be Wrong presents surprising revelations about daily life, using the mathematician's method of analyzing life and exposing the insights of the academic community to the layman--minus the jargon.--Excerpted from publisher.
