KIRKUS REVIEW

The concept of zero is presented as the most difficult, fascinating and instructive, in a book singular for its insight into the imagination; relevance and sheer excitement of mathematics. Along with curious puzzles, the author explores the growth of prime numbers (with zero the foundation), the contributions of famous mathematicians and despite some imbalance in intellectual analysis, the book is a skillful and rewarding work.
