Customer Review

on 11 August 2013
This book is a must read for any student considering a mathematics degree. Although the author starts off with a very very detailed history of the number/ idea of zero, Seife then moves on to the direct application it has to the principals of calculus, complex numbers, conics and set theory. In my opinion, it would take a rather good understanding of Physics in order to follow the applications in Quantum Mechanics. All in all, I would say that this book was worth reading, although for me the balance between the history of zero and the mathematical implications of zero tended to favor the former...
