Hannah Fry Books | Hello World
Hanna is the author of three books. The first, The Mathematics of Love: Patterns, Proofs, and the Search for the Ultimate Equation (2015), includes the “37% rule”. It is a form of the secretary problem according to which roughly the first third of any potential partners should be rejected.
The second, The Indisputable Existence of Santa Claus (2016) became co-authored with fellow mathematician Thomas Oléron Evans. It discusses various Christmas-related topics and how mathematics can be involved in them, including a fair Secret Santa.
Her third book is Hello World: Being Human in the Age of Algorithms (2018). The book looks at the impact of algorithms that affect lives
