G is for Googol: A Math Alphabet Book

Author(s): David Schwarz


Wait a minute--this isn't your everyday, ho-hum math book. Where else can you find A is for Abacus, B is for Binary, N is for Nature, and W is for "When are we ever gonna use this stuff, anyway?" This book will surely delight readers with noggins for numbers, but David Schwartz's trademark wit and Marissa Moss's quirky pictures will also beckon even the most math phobic.
