    If you make four straight cuts through a circular pizza, what is the maximum number of slices you can produce? Each chapter of this book explores such everyday situations with the help of diagrams, elementary algebra and non-technical language. It thus forms an ideal introduction to solving problems in the field of discrete mathematics, illustrating how the same question can be approached 'from several points of view and in various degrees of generality'.
