Mathematics is to nature as Sherlock Holmes is to evidence. Mathematics can look at a single snowflake and deduce the atomic geometry of its crystals; it can start with a violin string and uncover the existence of radio waves. And mathematics still has the power to open our eyes to new and unsuspected regularities - the secret structure of a cloud or the hidden rhythms of the weather.
There are patterns in the world we are now seeing for the first time - patterns at the frontier of science, yet patterns so simple that anybody can see them once they know where to look.

Wonderful educational audiobook!
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this audiobook. Prof. Stewart narrates and writes with wisdom and much experience and presents ideas and tricky concepts with ease.
In fact, this is also a really good primer to some of his other well-known books such as '17 Equations that Changed the World' and 'The Great Mathematical Problems'. Great value for money!
