Ben Orlin is a master storyteller and Math is his language. If you ever felt intimidated by Math and wondered why you should care - his books are for you! If you ever felt like Math is just facts and figures, his hilariously illustrated stories and examples are just the antidote!
Check out his blog Mathwithbaddrawings.com to see how he makes learning Math a joyful romp. Steven strogatz had this to say about Math with Bad Drawings - "Brilliant, wide-ranging and irreverant, it adds ha-ha to aha. It'll make you smile-plus it might just make you smarter and wiser".
