Praise for Our Days Are Numbered:

"Professor Brown's mathematical meanderings provide more than just entertainment. It's fun to learn about the odds in casino games and mathematical patterns in Beatles' songs, but Brown also takes the mystery out of calculating interest on your money, converting Fahrenheit to Celcius and interpreting daily values on food labels. And you'll enjoy numerous other examples of the fascinating use of numbers ranging forom risk anlysis to how GPS works. You can count on it."

Dr. Joe Schwarcz, Director of McGill University's Office for Science and Society
