ZERO The Biography of a Dangerous Idea

by | Read by Charles Seife

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

The discovery of zero changed our world. This fascinating history of numbers from the Babylonians to the present, including the contributions of the world's greatest mathematicians, is told with attention to detail. The author reads too rapidly for the technical material, sometimes merging three words into one, but the flaw is not fatal to comprehension. The exclusively verbal explanations of advanced mathematics and calculus push the limits of audiobooks, but the importance of the concepts and methods is not lost. Higher thinkers wanting challenging ideas will find abundant food for thought. J.A.H. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
