Description

The next book from Ben Orlin, the popular math blogger and author of the underground bestseller Math With Bad Drawings. Change Is The Only Constant is an engaging and eloquent exploration of the intersection between calculus and daily life, complete with Orlin's sly humor and wonderfully bad drawings. In this newest book following Math With Bad Drawings, Ben Orlin turns his attention to calculus. Spinning 28 engaging modern tales about math, Orlin shows us that calculus is simply another language to express the very things we humans grapple with everyday--love, risk, time, and most importantly, change. Divided into two parts, "Moments" and "Eternities," and drawing inspiration from everyone from Sherlock Holmes to David Foster Wallace, Change Is The Only Constant demonstrates clear parallels between calculus, art, literature, and everyday life, making us all better mathematicians, yes, but more importantly teaching us to be more thoughtful humans.
