Jordan Ellenberg is a professor of mathematics at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. His new book, How Not To Be Wrong, is an attempt to reconnect us with how maths can improve and inform our lives, deploying simple insights to get us thinking about real-life issues differently. He describes maths as, “an atomic-powered prosthesis that you attach to your common sense, vastly multiplying its reach and strength”.
