Editorial Reviews

"Berlinski here discusses the ’commons’ of mathematics: natural numbers, zero, negative numbers, and fractions…. The seamless integration of broader contextual ideas brings his writing to life." —Library Journal

"[A] tour de force by a mathematician who wants the intellectually curious and logically minded . . . to understand the foundations and beauty of one of the major branches of mathematics."
Kirkus Reviews
 
"With broad culture and wry humor, Berlinski takes a look at some basic concepts in math and the people who worried about them. A treat!"
—Gregory Chaitin, author of Meta Math!
 
"With wit and philosophy, with the clash of symbols and history, Berlinski displays the inner soul of simple arithmetic."
—Philip J. Davis, professor emeritus of applied mathematics, Brown University
