This is a book about the mysterious number we call π (pronounced "pie," while in much of Europe it is pronounced "pee"). What most people recall about π is that it was often mentioned in school mathe­matics. Conversely, one of the first things that comes to mind, when asked what we learned in mathematics during our school years, is something about π.
