Resumen

How math holds the keys to improving one's health, wealth, and love life

What's the best diet for overall health and weight management? How can we change our finances to retire earlier? How can we maximize our chances of finding our soul mate? In The Calculus of Happiness, Oscar Fernandez shows us that math yields powerful insights into health, wealth, and love. Relying on only high school-level math (precalculus with a dash of calculus), Fernandez uses everyday experiences to provide context for his mathematical insights and guides us through surprising results. Important formulas are linked to a dozen free online interactive calculators on the book's website, allowing one to personalize equations. Every chapter ends with a summary of essential lessons and takeaways, and for advanced math fans, Fernandez includes the mathematical derivations in the appendices.
