In this book, you'll learn why Florence Nightingale introduced pie charts, how Lewis Carroll regarded Pythagoras's theorem, and why some infinities are larger than others. In addition to such well-known figures as Archimedes and Isaac Newton, you'll also meet the mathematician who knew eight languages by the time he was 11, the one who was sent to jail for gambling, the ones who wrote a book on why 1 + 1 = 2, the one who spent his entire life traveling the world, and the one who published a lot but never existed.
