Zero The Biography of a Dangerous Idea

Review From User :

A book about numbers that had me laughing out loud while I was on vacation. My wife could not understand how a book about math could make me laugh so much...

But any book that shows the horrible mistake that not having a Year 0 (i.e., 1 BC and 1 AD are adjancent) would have on history as well as subtraction mistakes, how infinity is really is zero's tricky friend, and make almost understandable the reason why the amazing equation "e ^ (pi * i) = -1" is true is pretty fantastic.

I laughed, I cried. Amazing book.
