When you think of shortcuts, what comes to mind? Cheating? Or the premise of working smarter, not harder? Tim and David stumbled on a fascinating book by Oxford Professor of Mathematics Marcus du Sautoy called "Thinking Better: The Art of the Shortcut" which provides insight into the practice of using and finding shortcuts. In this episode David and Tim reminisce with Marcus about how Mathematics became a daunting subject they disconnected from for various reasons. But Marcus proves that mathematics is a wonderful thinking language and provides the shortcuts to get excited about it.

This episode references the AI Agents Podcast featuring Marcus talking about his previous book The Creativity Code.
