Online Reviews

"This 176-page hard cover book is a unique compilation of those little tidbits of fun facts and trivia that we love to share. For the math aficionado to those unenthusiastic and even reluctant about the thought of numbers this book is as fun, delectable, and dare I say sweet, as π!"
--Lori's LOLz

"I found this book very interesting and full of great information . . . It makes a great coffee table or bathroom reading book. It is best when read little pieces at a time. I have skipped and skimmed and read just about the entire book in a week. A few times I ended up taking it with me to work because I was interested in reading more. Whether or not you like numbers, they are a part of everyday life. You should learn a little more about them the fun way: read Easy as Pi!"
--Thrifty and Frugal Living

"Easy as Pi: The Countless Ways We Use Numbers Every Day takes a lighthearted and informative approach to readers. It is not preachy nor full of itself. There's no specific order the information is to be read or interpreted. The diagrams emphasize the dialogue and are often tongue-in-cheek. It's a fun book about numbers."
--Reference Books at Suite 101

"Anyone with an interest in how numbers relate to our daily lives -- and the lives of those who went before us -- will enjoy and be intrigued by the eclectic topics he addresses."
--Book Loons

"Written in a dictionary style within the categories, it's suitable for general reading and for reference purposes. The writer's style reminds me of A.J. Jacobs or Eric Weiner: fast paced and witty."
--Black Sheep Dances

"This is another of those quick and easy read trivia books! I can see where this would be a great resource book to have on had once your kids get to about middle school/ junior high, as it would be a help for YOU to explain slang like Catch-22, plus it has easy and funny info to use for reports and speeches. The section on why buses seem to arrive all at one time alone if worth the price of a book, and super info for reports! Thus it is also a great resource book for teens AND those going off to college! It would be a great gift to give, and receive!"
--Bless Their Hearts Mom

"You should read this book because it is very interesting and you will learn a lot about things you think you already know . . . "
--I Heart Books

"But, buy it for your nerd friends, for your nerd self, and for your nerd kids. It will make a perfect high school graduation gift, as long as you stick another $40 inside of it."
--Girl from the Ghetto

"Easy as Pi is a fun book about numbers. For those who believe numbers are boring, try to imagine for a second a world without them . . . If you are curious about numbers as more than math, this is the book for you."
--Just Another New Blog

"'Easy as Pi' is a book of fun Math trivia. It's aimed at people who like fun facts and are curious about Math or at least about numbers. Math geeks may or may not like the book. It's certainly not a text book. Those who like history will more likely enjoy the book as it is rich in backstory . . . 'Easy as Pi' is a fun read for the young mathematician or for the curious non-mathematician as the book is not at all intimidating."
