From One to Zero: A Universal History of Numbers

Georges Ifrah, Lowell Bair, "From One to Zero: A Universal History of Numbers"
1987 | pages: 541 | ISBN: 0140099190 | PDF | 9 mb

The Universal History of Numbers is the most comprehensive book I have come across on the subject by quite some way, and I have probably read over 100. The style of writing makes the book easy to read, and it assumes almost no prior knowledge. Having said that the book is not exactly light bed time reading, there are nearly 650 large pages of quite small writing. It would take a *very* dedicated or interested reader to tackle the book from cover to cover. In my opinion it is best to read the introduction and first one or two chapters, and then to dip into the bits of the book you are particularly interested in.
