An hilarious, enlightening romp through the world of numbers with one of Australia’s best-loved broadcasters.

In 100 bite-sized chapters, mathematician, broadcaster and comedian Adam Spencer unlocks more of the secrets of the world of numbers.

If you’ve ever wondered about the ‘fourth dimension’, why spider monkeys have so many bones in their hands, which numbers are truly narcissistic, or how on earth you play ‘Buckyball’, Adam Spencer’s Big Book of Numbers will set you straight.

Over 15 years two successful breakfast gigs on the national youth radio network Triple J and the much more grown up ABC Sydney followed along with a television career on shows as diverse as The Drum (news and current affairs), The Back Page (Sports analysis), Good News Week (Comedy), Sleek geeks (Science comedy) and Australia's most watched television Poker show.

Now he returns to his original geeky passion with his Big Book of Numbers.
