Summary : How many people do you need in a room before there'll be a birthday in common? Why is 70 weird, and what can we do about it? How can 56 people eat 1 pizza? In 100 bite-size chapters of no more than three pages each, Adam Spencer gives each number, 1 to 100, its place in the limelight. For example, take 65. It's the constant of a 5 x 5 "magic square" -- a square that contains the numbers 1 to 25, where all the rows and columns and each diagonal add up to 65. Elizabeth Taylor had 65 costume changes in Cleopatra. And sharks can travel up to 65 kilometers per hour (about 40 mph). After reading Adam Spencer's Book of Numbers, readers will never look at numbers the same way again.

Summary : In her mid-twenties, rudderless and unsure, Michelle moved into her step- great-grandmother Shan-Yi's Sydney apartment just after her passing. Shan-Yi had been part of Michelle's family since long before she was born and staying at the glamourous art deco apartment was meant to help Michelle back on her feet. While there, Michelle found an extraordinary trove of letters, diaries and papers that told of her great-grandmother's unique life - one of adventure and heartache, trans-Atlantic travel and espionage. Born in China, Shan-Yi moved to America with her family aged four and ran away to Canton at sixteen with the help of a businessman and music connoisseur, Warsing Fuh. So began Shan-Yi's extraordinary globe-trotting twenties before she settled in Sydney with a German man - at the start of World War II - only he wasn't what he seemed. Meticulously researched and told with great heart, this is the story of an unparalleled life and the inspiration it afforded her step-great-grandaughter - exactly when she needed it the most.

Summary : Have you ever wondered why a rainbow is curved? Or why left-handers aren't extinct? How a sunflower is like a synchronised swimmer, or a lightning bolt is like a blood vessel? The answer to all these questions and more can be summed up in one simple word: MATHS. As the inimitable Eddie Woo explains, maths is not just about numbers. Maths is about patterns, and our universe is extraordinarily patterned. With enthusiasm and wonder, Eddie is here to help us discover these patterns.

Filled with humour and heart, this book will fascinate, entertain and illuminate the maths that surrounds us. This is a specially formatted fixed layout ebook that retains the look and feel of the print book. LONGLISTED FOR THE ABIA GENERAL NON-FICTION BOOK OF THE YEAR 2019 PRAISE FOR EDDIE WOO "I never thought I'd read a maths book cover to cover, let alone sing its praises.

Summary : We Are Speaking in Code explores difference and deviance in the everyday through the lenses of mental illness, queerness and migrant identity. Weaving personal anecdotes with reflections on trauma, psychology and contemporary relationships this collection of essays catalogues, reconsiders and unravels ideas of belonging, identity and the way we operate in the world. Opening with a visit 'home' to Moscow where she speaks an alphabet-soup Russian, Vavilova tries to connect with her mother and grandmother. The titular essay starts one of the central conversations of the book; what does it mean to be a migrant whose identity is impossible in the land of their forebears and highly complicated in their home. Vavilova also tackles the millennial preoccupations of finding meaningful paid work, navigating dating in the tech age and the perils of building a living as an artist. Bridging social, emotional and geographic distances, Vavilova's essays look for ways to live on the edges, with grace, humour and lucid rage.
