Produktbeschreibung
In The Calculus of Happiness, Oscar Fernandez shows us that math yields powerful insights into health, wealth, and love. Using only high-school-level math (precalculus with a dash of calculus), Fernandez guides us through several of the surprising results, including an easy rule of thumb for choosing foods that lower our risk for developing diabetes (and that help us lose weight too), simple "all-weather" investment portfolios with great returns, and math-backed strategies for retiring earlier and finding our soul mate. Moreover, the important formulas are linked to a dozen free online interactive calculators on Fernandez's website, allowing one to personalize the equations. A nutrition, personal finance, and relationship how-to guide all in one, The Calculus of Happiness invites you to discover how empowering mathematics can be.

Rezensionen
"With an informal, engaging tone and sound applications, The Calculus of Happiness facilitates financial literacy. This is the first time I've encountered a book aimed at general readers that addresses the topic of financial mathematics. It is a valuable work that will serve as a lifelong resource." - John A. Adam, author of A Mathematical Nature Walk
