By Eugenia Cheng ථ Cheng s book, a very gentle introduction to the main ideas of mathematics in general and category theory in particular, exudes enthusiasm for mathematics, teaching, and creative recipes Category theory is dangerously abstract, but Cheng s writing is down to earth and friendly She s the kind of person you d want to talk to at a party, whether about math, food, music, or just the weather Cheng s cheerful, accessible writing and colorful examples make How to Bake Pi an entertaining introduction to the fundamentals of abstract mathematical thinking Evelyn Lamb, Scientific American s Roots of Unity blog A slyly illuminating dispatch on the deep meaning of mathematics Cheng manages to do for us what the mathematician Keith Devlin has said mathematicians do for themselves she compels us to see numbers and symbols as vivid characters in an ongoing drama, a narrative in which we are alternately observers and participants Natalie Angier, The American Scholar O ften entertainingfrequently illuminating How to Bake Pi offers enough nourishment for the brain to chew on for a long time Columbus Dispatch In her new book, How to Bake Pi, mathematician baker Eugenia Cheng offers a novel, mathematical approach to cooking How to Bake Pi is than a mathematically minded cookbook It is just as much a book about mathematical theory and how we learn it The premise at the heart of the book is that the problem that stops a cookbook from teaching us how to cook is the same problem that makes math classes so bad at actually teaching us to do math Ria Misra, io9 Cheng never quite overeggs her metaphor of the mathematician as chefand her tone is clear, clever and friendly Even at her most whimsical she is rigorous and insightful Potentially confusing ideas are expressed with a matter of fact simplicity How to Bake Pi is a welcome addition to the popular math shelf, unusual not only because of its quirky premise but also because Cheng is a woman, a lucid and nimble expositor, and unashamedly proud of her domestic obsessions It would be wonderful if this book attracted a new audience to the field And there s no better ambassador or dinner party host, I d wager than Eugenia Cheng Alex Bellos, New York Times Book Review Combined with infectious enthusiasm for cooking and a zest for life, Cheng s perspective on math becomes this singular book a funny, lively, and clear journey no popular book on math has explored before How to Bake Piwill dazzle, amuse, and enlighten Gambit Weekly Invoking plenty of examples from cooking and baking, as well as other everyday life situations such as calculating a taxi fare, searching for love through online dating services and training for a marathon, Cheng explains abstract mathematical ideas including topology and logic in understandable ways Her lively, accessible book demonstrates how important and intriguing such a pursuit can be Scientific American This is the best book imaginable to introduce someone who doesn t think they are interested in mathematics at all to some of the deep ideas of category theory, especially if they like to bake MAA Reviews Beginning each chapter with a recipe, Cheng converts the making of lasagna, pudding, cookies, and other comestibles into analogies illuminating the mathematical enterprise Though these culinary analogies teach readers about particular mathematical principles and processes, they ultimately point toward the fundamental character of mathematics as a system of logic, a system presenting daunting difficulties yet offering rare power to make life easier Despite her zeal for mathematical logic, Cheng recognizes that such logic begins in faith irrational faith and ultimately requires poetry and art to complement its findings A singular humanization of the mathematical project Booklist, starred review Cheng is exceptional at translating the abstract concepts of mathematics into ordinary language, a strength aided by a writing style that showcases the workings of her curious, sometimes whimsical mind This combination allows her to demystify how mathematicians think and work, and makes her love for mathematics contagious Publishers Weekly, starred reviewWhimsicalrigorous and insightful New York Times Book ReviewWhat is math How exactly does it work And what do three siblings trying to share a cake have to do with it In How to Bake Pi, math professor Eugenia Cheng provides an accessible introduction to the logic and beauty of mathematics, powered, unexpectedly, by insights from the kitchen We learn how the b chamel in a lasagna can be a lot like the number five, and why making a good custard proves that math is easy but life is hard At the heart of it all is Cheng s work on category theory, a cutting edge mathematics of mathematics, that is about figuring out how math works.Combined with her infectious enthusiasm for cooking and true zest for life, Cheng s perspective on math is a funny journey through a vast territory no popular book on math has explored before So, what is math Let s look for the answer in the kitchen.
