Colin Beveridge is the author of Basic Maths For Dummies, Numeracy Tests For Dummies and The Little Algebra Book.

He holds a PhD in Mathematics from the University of St Andrews and worked for several years on NASA’s Living With A Star project at Montana State University, where he came up with an equation which is named after him. It’s used to help save the world from being destroyed by solar flares. So far so good.

He became tired of the glamour of academia and returned to the UK to concentrate on helping students come to terms with maths and show that not all mathematicians are boring nerds; some are exciting, relatively well-adjusted nerds.

Colin lives in Weymouth, Dorset, where he works as a maths tutor. He is happy to discuss anything maths-related.
