Description

In this must-have for anyone who wants to better understand their love life, a mathematician pulls back the curtain and reveals the hidden patterns—from dating sites to divorce, sex to marriage—behind the rituals of love. .

The roller coaster of romance is hard to quantify; defining how lovers might feel from a set of simple equations is impossible. But that doesn’t mean that mathematics isn’t a crucial tool for understanding love. .

Love, like most things in life, is full of patterns. And mathematics is ultimately the study of patterns—from predicting the weather to the fluctuations of the stock market, the movement of planets or the growth of cities. These patterns twist and turn and warp and evolve just as the rituals of love do. .

In The Mathematics of Love, Dr. Hannah Fry takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the patterns that define our love lives, applying mathematical formulas to the most common yet complex questions pertaining to love: What’s the chance of finding love? What’s the probability that it will last? How do online dating algorithms work, exactly? Can game theory help us decide who to approach in a bar? At what point in your dating life should you settle down?

From evaluating the best strategies for online dating to defining the nebulous concept of beauty, Dr. Fry proves—with great insight, wit, and fun—that math is a surprisingly useful tool to negotiate the complicated, often baffling, sometimes infuriating, always interesting, mysteries of love.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Wonderful Audiobook

Would you consider the audio edition of The Mathematics of Love to be better than the print version?

Never had the printed version

What about Hannah Fry’s performance did you like?

As she is the writer, her enthusiasm regarding this wonderful subject shines through her voice. I found it wonderful.

What did you learn from The Mathematics of Love that you would use in your daily life?

Since I am long past the optimal stopping rule for my search of love, that part is not applicable to me (although very interesting). The low negativity threshold seems like practical advice that I will remember. But aside of that, even the seemingly non-practical parts were all intriguing.

Any additional comments?

Seriously recommend the book to anyone with an inclination to mathematical modeling (no previous background is needed though), and anyone interested in the scientific aspects of love.

An Interesting Take on Mathematics

The way that the book connects mathematics to concepts of romance both practically and impractically helps keep the listener interested in what is usually a dull subject. Hannah Fry's enthusiasm for math enhances the book. She reads the book with the perfect intonation, certainly because she is both author and narrator of the book.

Not necessarily good in audio form

I read other reviews that said that this particular book is not great in audio because there are some tables, graphs and mathematical formulas that although included in the accompanying PDF, take away from the enjoyment of listening to a purely audio book. I tend to agree with them now. The book is a nice introduction to some mathematical concepts and insights, but if you really want it buy the ebook or printed version.

Better in audio format

I had bought this book some time ago but couldn't get to the end: I expected more complexity and mathematical rigor than the book could provide. However, the audiobook is quite a different story: the narration does a good job in keeping the tone light and the book entertaining. All things considered, I would recommend the audiobook to a friend.

Expanded version of Fry's TED talk

Any additional comments?

This is an expanded TED book based on Fry's original TED talk. Fry looks at the mathematics behind everything from meeting people in bars to the algorithms dating sites use to what age to settle down to wedding planning, predicting divorce, and why maintaining a long-term relationship is actually the same mathematically as the Prisoner's Dilemma (and why the same game strategies work). Short but interesting.

Very Good

Ms. Fry has a beautiful voice in my opinion and she reads her book very well. The book is very good. One problem with specifically the audible version are the mathematical equations and the like. I can imagine they'd be easy enough to understand when written out but it takes a good deal of concentration to decipher them audibly. Overall a great listen though I wish there was more.

"No model is accurate, but some are helpful."

I loved her approach, tackling problems with different methods. I found myself rewinding at different points. I will most likely reread/listen.

What happens to the Katty Perrys? Interesting.

I think it offers an interesting view. It never talks about the bachelor paradox. Are all successful women doomed to be unmarried?

I loved it

The book is brilliant, Hannah Fry is great as well in her voice acting. It's stunning how maths can have a say in such, you would think, unpredictable human behaviors. It seems at the end we all are kind of dull and predictable in our decisions.

Same as ted talk

Search for her ted talk, it's almost the same. I was expecting more new stuff
