El hombre anumérico

Un ensayo. Por fin un libro de divulgación y no una novela (o una poesía épica como la Iliada) algo de eso que siempre dije que no leía, pero que si algún día tenía un lector de libros electrónico haría. Lo cierto es que lo he leído en la pantalla del ordenador, así que ni esa excusa tenía.

John Allen Paulos es un profesor de matemáticas conocido por sus ensayos matemáticos en los que trata de acercar su ciencia a la gente de una manera sencilla y atractiva.

En este libro se encarga de mostrar todos esos errores relacionados con los números que los medios de comunicación, políticos y cualquier hijo de vecino introduce en sus conversaciones por desconocimiento en algunos casos o con intención de dirigir a la sociedad en otros. Temas que van desde esos porcentajes escandalosos (posibilidades de morir en un ataque terrorista, de desarrollar una enfermedad de tal o cual tipo, etc.) hasta cosas tan cercanas como juegos de azar.

Como bien dice, en la sociedad actual está bien visto desconocer las matemáticas. Comentarios como "es que a mí los números se me dan mal" o "es que tantos números me confunden", junto con el socorrido "soy de letras" están perfectamente aceptados y se reciben con sonrisas, mientras que hay una gran cantidad de gente siempre dispuesta a hacer sangre frente a un error en el uso del lenguaje.

Seamos más cultos y no nos dejemos engañar con tanta facilidad. Una lectura entretenida y didáctica, a la par que rápida.
