Math is not the most exciting thing to read about but I was always a fan. I have never heard if Seagull before and I have never watched University Challenge but I saw this book featured on Ali Abdaal’s YouTube and was intrigued.

To make it short: This book is not for everyone. In fact, this is a niche book and I can’t see it getting a book audience. The book does discuss some interesting topics and it provides mathematical insight which was so easy and basic to more complicated equations.

This may be mean but I think Seagull is a great mathematician but a mediocre writer. I hoped to get a bit more out of this book. I never got the humor or the football references -and boy there were plenty of those- but the math was what interested me and I think it kind of applies to anyone interested in the book.

Summary: The title is a bit dramatic because it did not and won’t change my life in any way but it just gave me some beautiful insight into part of the math world. The writing is a bit rough and the humor did not work for me but it was a fast read anyway. Some of the riddles were cool and some were just meh. I think math nerds can still enjoy this one!
