Book Review by Bill Gates – How NOT to be Wrong

Under the title “How Math Secretly Affects Your Life,” Bill Gates reviews the book How Not to be Wrong by Jordan Ellenberg.

“I took a lot of math classes in college. I remember Professor Shlomo Sternberg getting up on the first day of his class and telling us we weren’t going to see any numbers other than 0, 1, and 2. I had a great time in that one.

Jordan Ellenberg, the author of How Not to Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking, studied under Sternberg, but I think I’d like his book even if we didn’t have that in common. On the surface it’s about math, but it’s really about how much math plays into our daily lives without our even knowing it”
