The most recent issue of Rhodes (formerly Rhodes Today), a quarterly magazine published by Rhodes College, includes a summer reading list put together by members of the school s esteemed faculty. Assistant Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science Eric Gottlieb recommends The 85 Ways to Tie a Tie. Gottlieb describes the book, saying, Two physicists tell all about ties and how to knot them. The book includes a history of ties, a mathematical analysis of the number of tie knots smaller than a specified size, an illustrated compendium of instructions for tying those ties, [and] lots of photos of famous men in ties. Sounds great, but we ll wait for the movie.
