Taking moments from everyday life and looking at the maths and science behind why they happen, this book examines everything from how to measure the speed of a tennis serve, to the maths behind spam emails.

Have you ever wondered why traffic jams often turn out to have no cause when you get to the end of the queue? There's a mathematical explanation for that. Or ever considered whether some lotteries might be easier to win than others? There's a formula for that too. If you've ever been curious about the mathematical strings that hold our world together, then look no further than The Maths Behind.

This intriguing and illuminating book takes a scientific view of your everyday world, and can give you the answers to all the niggling questions in your life, along with many you never even thought to ask. From the science behind roller coasters, to the maths behind how to consistently win at Monopoly (and become very unpopular with your family), this is a fascinating look at the mathematical forces that run beneath our everyday transactions.
