Zero by Charles Seife
Rate this book
Clear rating
A little glib. Concept-driven — linking cosmology, calculus, and single-point perspective through a common dependence on the concept of zero. Pretty sketchy on the ancient Greeks. By no means up to such writers as Gamow and Gleick.

“Today

So here hath been dawning
Another blue Day:
Think wilt thou let it
Slip useless away.

Out of Eternity
This new Day is born;
Into Eternity,

Another blue Day:
Think wilt thou let it
Slip useless away.”
Thomas Carlyle
