In this delightful layperson's introduction to one of math's most interesting phenomena, Drs Posamentier and Lehmann review p's history from prebiblical times to the 21st century, the many amusing and mindboggling ways of estimating p over the centuries, quirky examples of obsessing about p (including an attempt to legislate its exact value), and useful applications of p in everyday life, including statistics.
