    We are a people of numbers. We have phone numbers, house numbers, Social Security numbers, medical records numbers, lot numbers, and serial numbers. Even our computers and electronic devices function with numbers - you get the idea. Easy as Pi gives the read a glimpse into the world of numbers and how society uses them.
    A brief summary of the divisions in Easy as Pi:
    Numbers in our language - phrases using numbers explained
    Numbers in Fiction - Movies, books and TV shows with numbers in the title
    Numbers in Culture - gambling, Social Security, scams, etc.
    Numbers in Mythology and Religion - numerology and significance of numbers in the Bible
    Numbers in Math and Science - types of numbers, statistics, and oddities

    This is not a mathematics instruction book. In Easy as Pi, I learned of the Piraha tribe, a small tribe in Brazil with a numbering system consisting of one, two and many - that's all. I also learned about life without "0", and all about Pi. Why did Ray Bradbury name his book Fahrenheit 451? Little snippets of information that help you gain insight into how important numbers are in our lives. Books like these are a fun interaction for families. Parents can quiz children or children can quiz their parents.

    This is another wonderful book in the Reader's Digest Series. I have also reviewed:
    I used to Know That by Caroline Taggart
    A Certain "Je Ne Sais Quoi by Chloe Rhodes

    Random Trivia, Anyone?

    I'll be want honesty, right? This book wasn't my cup of tea. Now, please don't misunderstand. It is chock full of information about every numerical saying known to man, including many I have never heard of. On the other hand, it is a book chock full of every numerical saying known to man. You see where I'm going with this?

    I am very sure that lots of people love reading that kind of stuff. I personally know several people with fountains of random trivia coming out of their mouths all the time. That is the type of person who would likely enjoy this book. It is definitely full of lots of trivia and some pretty good information. I just wish there was some humor or something to make the material easier on the brain.

    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from FSB Media. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255 : "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."
