Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Is there a secret formula for getting rich? For making something a viral hit? For deciding how long to stick with your current job, Netflix series or even relationship?

This book is all about the equations that make our world go round. Ten of them, in fact. They are integral to everything from investment banking to betting companies and social media giants. And they can help you to increase your chance of success, guard against financial loss, live more healthily and see through scaremongering. They were known only by mathematicians - until now.

With wit and clarity, Mathematician David Sumpter shows that it isn't the technical details which make these formulas so successful. It is the way they allow mathematicians to view problems from a different angle - a way of seeing the world that anyone can learn.

Empowering and illuminating, The Ten Equations That Rule the World shows how maths really can change your life.

Entertaining

A very entertaining listen. It would be useful, however, if a PDF of the equations was included for easy reference.

Certain sections detailing the equations are very difficult to follow.

Unnecessarily “woke”

Interesting book, but a Politicisation of maths with big assumptions about what “everybody should think”
