A funny and enlightening romp through the world of numbers with one of Australia's best-loved broadcasters.

By popular demand, Australia's funniest and most famous mathematician is back with a brilliant new book. Adam Spencer's World of Numbers takes the reader on a funfilled ride, explaining the crucial role numbers play in our understanding of sport and space, computers and cooking, and a whole lot in between. With his trademark wit, Adam decodes barcodes, explains why we say 'as sixes and sevens' when we're discombobulated - and works out if there really a word in the English language with 189,819 letters! This is a book for readers of all ages who love numbers, or just love to laugh and learn about the wonderful world we live in.

For close to 20 years Adam Spencer has been entertaining us. On triple j and ABC radio and television, he's established himself as Australia's funniest and most famous mathematician. Following on from the enormous success of 2014's Big Book of Numbers, his new book is the perfect gift for Christmas.

Adam Spencer

Whilst studying for a PhD in Pure Mathematics at the University of Sydney, Adam won a national stand-up comedy competition and went into radio.

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.
