    • There's a useful calculation being used by Wall Street, Silicon Valley and maths professors all over the world, and it predicts that human civilization will be over in 760 years. Unfortunately, there is disagreement over how to apply the formula. With his rare gift for explaining mathematical concepts and a keen eye for the revealing anecdote, William Poundstone explains how it is done, with brief detours into archaeology, philology, and overdue library books. From the author of "Are You Smart Enough to Work for Google".
