      His new book, The Tyranny of Metrics (Princeton University Press), critiques not only higher education but many parts of society that rely on metrics. "Gaming the metrics occurs in every realm: in policing, in primary, secondary and higher education; in medicine, in nonprofit organizations; and, of course, in business," Muller writes. MIT professor Alan Natapoff demonstrated mathematically how the Electoral College protects Americans from tyranny of the majority, as well as giving voters significantly more power at the ballot box than they would have in a national popular vote.

    Tyranny of the Textbook is an indispensable insider's guide to how the publishing industry creates the single most important resource for what students will be taught in school and why that resource is badly flawed. I highly recommend this book/5(12). Paul Feyerabend is one of the greatest philosophers of science of the 20th century and his book Against Method is an international bestseller. In this new book he masterfully weaves together the main elements of his mature philosophy into a gripping tale: the story of the rise of rationalism in Ancient Greece that eventually led to the entrenchment of a mythical ‘scientific worldview’.

    This book is based on an honors course in advanced calculus that we gave in the ’s. It can accordingly be used (with omissions) as a text for a year’s course in advanced calculus, or as a text for a three-semester introduction to analysis.   Ian Stewart's top 10 popular mathematics books The book illuminates such questions as how genes spread through a population and the evolution of cooperation, by .
