Zero: The Biography of a Dangerous Idea

by Charles Seife Author

Schoolhouse Rock called this number its hero, and it's been making huge impacts and stirring up controversy since long before that. Charles Seife takes us through the history of the number zero, including its implications in mathematics, science, religion, and entire cultures. Zero even plays a big part in the search for the theory of everything, and diagrams and quotes support a narrative that will explain why. This is a great way to tackle the hefty concept of technical nothingness.
