I saw Hannah Fry three months ago at the RSS Conference and I loved her storytelling of amazing algorithms (check last month’s book), but in the spirit of Christmas I would recommend you to read her other book “The Indisputable Existence of Santa Claus. The Mathematics of Christmas” written with the co-author Dr. Thomas Oleron Evans.
If you are curious of how Game Theory could be applied when selecting who should be on your Christmas Shopping list, or how to use Geometry in helping you wrap more efficient with less wrapping paper wasted, then this is an amazing option.
I prefer to gift these kind of books to clients who still believe in Santa!
Happy Winter Season Everyone!
