Description: Why is it better to buy a lottery ticket on Friday? Do you get wetter running rather than walking through the rain? Why do traffic lights always seem to be red when you're in a hurry? These and other questions about the curiosities of everyday life are answered in this delightfully irreverent and highly informative book. Why Do Buses Come in Threes? is a wonderful way to discover the relevance of math in absolutely everything we do, from dating and driving to gambling and cooking. Whether readers have a degree in astrophysics or haven't touched a math problem since high school, this book will change the way they view the world -- whether it's discussing the wartime technique for saving energy when making toast; the odd coincidence of U.S. presidents dying on the Fourth of July, or the exponential growth of Australian rabbits.
