The Simpsons and Their Mathematical Secrets

This is a delightful book. I ‘inhaled’ it. I had some ‘laugh out loud’ moments. Simon Singh weaves the Mathematical secrets with historical vignettes and insights into the wonderfully creative writers of the Simpsons and Futurama. There is also a five part exam of sorts.

I admit to being one of those who recognized the Homer’s epiphany  after wearing  Kissinger’s spectacles (retrieved from the toilet) as homage to the Wizard of Oz…a confident but incorrect assertion by the Scarecrow after having been bestowed a brain by the Wizard…

I have enjoyed Simon Singh’s books, esp Fermat’s Last Theorem and The Code Book. This was an incredibly enjoyable read (from the view point of a fan of Mathematics and The Simpsons).
