Author:David Blatner
Description: No number has captured attention and imagination throughout the ages as much as the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter - pi. With historical insight and a sense of humor, The Joy of Pi offers the story of pi and humankind's fascination with it, from Archimedes to da Vinci to the modern-day Chudnovsky brothers, who holed up in their Manhattan apartment with a homemade supercomputer churning out digits of pi into the billions.
