HOW TO BAKE PI An Edible Exploration of the Mathematics of Mathematics

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Tavia Gilbert

Contemporary Culture • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Tavia Gilbert narrates with a liveliness and lightness that one might not expect in a book about the world of mathematics. Various recipes are used to highlight points about math, revealing that math, like cooking recipes, is made up of ingredients and method. Gilbert persuasively presents this edible exploration into mathematical concepts, making them seem as familiar and unintimidating as cooking. Gilbert’s fluid voice conveys the themes of beauty and power in both the concrete and abstract aspects of math. While it’s uncertain whether or not everyone will come away with a complete understanding of the concepts, Gilbert’s lyrical narration, together with her deliberate speed as she delivers the formulas, brings clarity and a down-to-earth approach to this often intimidating subject matter.
