This is a book of theories, of possibilities, concepts, dreams, and speculations, based upon a lot of hard (and soft) evidence and a lot of reaching beyond the boundaries of the known into that gray zone, where, heck, let's face it, anything is possible. It is exciting and fun and intriguing and just might resonate with others out there who have had unusual experiences that couldn't be duplicated in a lab or reduced to a math equation. It is one truth in a multiverse of truths waiting to be discovered, if that is at all possible. There isn't a scientist, skeptic, student, or sage alive who knows the ultimate reality of reality. All we can do is guess, and hope that maybe, when we leave this earth, we might get a glimpse of truth. But that's what makes it so exciting ... the guessing. The hope.

Kiss My Math meets A Tour of the Calculus Jennifer Ouellette never took math in college, mostly because she-like most people-assumed that she wouldn't need it in real life. But then the English-major-turned-award-winning-science-writer had a change of heart and decided to revisit the equations and formulas that had haunted her for years. The Calculus Diaries is the fun and fascinating account of her year spent confronting her math phobia head on. With wit and verve, Ouellette shows how she learned to apply calculus to everything from gas mileage to dieting, from the rides at Disneyland to shooting craps in Vegas-proving that even the mathematically challenged can learn the fundamentals of the universal language.
