#1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER AN ADAM SAVAGE BOOK CLUB PICK The book-length answer to anyone who ever put their hand up in math class and asked, “When am I ever going to use this in the real world?” “Fun, informative, and relentlessly entertaining, Humble Pi is a charming and very readable guide to some of humanity's all-time greatest miscalculations—that also gives you permission to feel a little better about some of your own mistakes.” —Ryan North, author of How to Invent Everything Our whole world is built on math, from the code running a website to the equations enabling the design of skyscrapers and bridges. Most of the time this math works quietly behind the scenes . . . until it doesn’t. All sorts of seemingly innocuous mathematical mistakes can have significant consequences. Math is easy to ignore until a misplaced decimal point upends the stock market, a unit conversion error causes a plane to crash, or someone divides by zero and stalls a battleship in the middle of the ocean. Exploring and explaining a litany of glitches, near misses, and mathematical mishaps involving the internet, big data, elections, street signs, lotteries, the Roman Empire, and an Olympic team, Matt Parker uncovers the bizarre ways math trips us up, and what this reveals about its essential place in our world. Getting it wrong has never been more fun.

In a hilarious comedy of errors that Booklist has dubbed “a good choice for fans of John Green,” high school matchmaker Shane Chambliss is content finding love for his classmates—until love finally finds him. What if the secrets of dating and love were revealed in one simple formula? That’s the tantalizing proposition high school senior Shane Chambliss offers the hopeless and hapless guys who come to him for relationship advice. After the girl of his dreams breaks his heart, Shane devises a mysterious formula called the Galgorithm and establishes himself as the resident dating guru at Kingsview High School. But his attempts to master the art of romance go outrageously awry.

Humble Pie

This global system rules over our lives from religion, politics, economics, culture and art. Read this book to see how COVID-19 came to eclipse and expose this system, and to learn how to escape the snare of the antiChrist system.

The world is going through a divine eclipse known as COVID-19 that started in China and has since spread around the globe. Have you wondered about the meaning of this unusual event? God has an answer. He downloaded this over 130,000 words message to me in a month! The sheer size of the message and my ability to write it down within such a short time is itself a miracle. The download started on pi day, 3/14/2020. The message is itself based on the pi verse, John 3:14: “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up,” John 3:14 NKJV. This COVID-19 quarantine is to humble us so we look up at the ultimate Humble Pi (e): Jesus Christ. The prophecy of COVID-19 is our final warning to seek salvation through Jesus before He comes back again as King of kings; AND it’s another pi verse! “Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.” Revelation 22:7 NKJV. COVID-19 is just the initial birth pains of the Second Coming. COVID-19 came as a forewarning because the world is caught up in a Satanic system that’s now ripe for the arrival of the antiChrist. This global system rules over our lives from religion, politics, economics, culture and art. Read this book to see how COVID-19 came to eclipse and expose this system, and to learn how to escape the snare of the antiChrist system. Read to learn hidden knowledge exposed here FOR THE FIRST TIME by use of secret codes hidden in the divine meaning of Biblical numbers and names. This book will turn your understanding of the world as you know it upside-down, and you will realize that we have been living a lie. COVID-19 is for the revealing of Second Elijah. It is he who writes these words. He’s come to fulfil Malachi 4:5-6: “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. And he will turn The hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.” This book is for the salvation of souls, and the world. It is God's first sickle swipe in His harvest of souls before "the dreadful day of the LORD." Read it and pass on to your family and friends.

The Oxford Companion to Australian Literature, which now appears in a fully revised and updated second edition, provides a concise but comprehensive account of Australian writing from European settlement in 1788 to 1993. Its chief aim is to present the most important achievements of Australianliterature in the major fields of poetry, fiction and drama, but considerable attention has also been paid to non-fictional prose and to the impact on Australian literature of those historical events which served not only as catalysts but also as the subject matter of so much of it.William Wilde and Joy Hooton - building on the 1985 edition which was co-authored by the late Barry Andrews - present an even more diverse record of literary achievement. The new Companion reflects three major changes in the literary culture: the emergence of Aboriginal writing, the increase in andrecognition of multicultural writing, and the great increase in women's writing in all genres. The new edition also relects the substantial research achievements of literary historians, textual critics, bibliographers, biographers and the impact of critical reinterpretations based on such 'new'approaches as feminism and post-colonialism.Every entry has been reappraised and, where necessary, revised and expanded. During the 1980s several Australian writers won international reputations. Many of them - Malouf, Garner, Murray, Jolley, Carey and Williamson - produced some of their key works after the first edition of the Companion wascompleted, and their entries have been rewritten accordingly. In addition, a new generation of writers has been included - Brett, Halligan, Henshaw, Castro, Grenville, Masters and Hodgins, to name just a few.Reviewing the first edition, A.D. Hope acclaimed it as a 'landmark'. In the greatly expanded second edition, the authors provide a fuller and more contemporary record of the national literature.
