Synopsis

This wonderful book is an introduction to the relationship between mathematics and the physical world.

(It was a delightful eye-opener to many 8th graders, doomed to later become engineers and physists!)

It is an excellent, although old, bk by an astrophysicist.

It deals with numbers & statistics in a rreadable way. It is is sprinkled with with illustrations and arguments that make sense. In its own way, it it argues for the existence of God, of whom I am a strong proponent.
