Description

Entertaining vignettes abound in this quirky "meta-memoir" that raises questions about our lives that most of us don't think to ask but arguably should: What part of memory is reliable fact, what part creative embellishment? Which favorite presuppositions are unfounded, which statistically biased? Bestselling mathematician John Allen Paulos has created an unusual hybrid, a composite of personal memories and mathematical approaches to reevaluating them. For fans of Paulos or newcomers to his work, this witty commentary on his life-- and yours-- is fascinating listening.
