  • Sometimes books about numbers come along and we're so ecstatic that we just pop with delight. One such book is The Ten Equations that Rule The World

    Tim Harford, More or Less BBC4
  • Hugely entertaining, erudite and at times genuinely witty . . . it's nice to be spoken to in grown-up language by a genius. You will come away from Sumpter's book with a much clearer idea of why the world is less messy than it appears

    E&T Magazine
  • These aren't the equations of Newton or Einstein -- crisp relations describing the evolution of a clockwork universe. These are the equations of randomness, expectation, and imperfect information. The equations, in other words, of the real world. David Sumpter provides an entertaining tour that will change how you see the world

    Sean Carroll author of Something Deeply Hidden
  • Sumpter writes fascinatingly about his experiences as a consulting mathematician. . . I will encourage my mathematics undergraduates to read this book since it will inspire them by showing the relevance of mathematics to today's world and make them think about the moral issues they will face as mathematicians
