Numbers: Their History and Meaning
Extremely readable, jargon-free book for general readers traces the evolution of counting systems--from the primitive techniques of antiquity to computers. Text examines the earliest endeavors to count and record numbers, initial attempts to solve problems by using equations, and origins of infinite cardinal arithmetic. 'The success of Flegg's lively exposition and the care he gives to his surprisingly exciting topic recommend this book to every library.'--Choice.
