about

Geekspeak is Dr. Graham Tattersall’s quirky love letter to math, logic, and problem solving… and to the self-professed geeks everywhere who revel in such esoterica. Written for the numero-phobic and the calcu-lover alike, Geekspeak doesn’t shy away from complex problems, but always explains them in a way that’s elegantly curious, easily understood, and, above all, endlessly entertaining.
Dr. Graham Tattersall is a freelance engineer working on projects as diverse as computer-aided shoe fitting, fault analysis systems for trains, and enhancement of ultrasound images. He lives in Suffolk, England.
