Overview

For those who hate numbers; and those who like them. Are numbers weird, annoying things that don't mean much? And where did they come from anyway? We don't learn the history of numbers in Math class. This gives them an unreal image that confuses a lot of people. But they came from somewhere for a reason and it helps to know where. This is a short article about the invention of 1, long, long ago.

    Very interesting

    This short story teaches some of the backgroung of the developmennt of numbers. I learned some interesting facts thriugh this. I would reccomend this to everyone. It is always good to know that things have more meaning...and where they came from.

    Math Junkie

    If you're into numbers and the concept of math then you might find this short piece interesting. I felt that the author didn't maintain any kind of interest. Disappointed.

    So So

    Very remedial. This really should be listed as a book for adolescents and not for adults.

    Good book with only 1 con...

    The only con is:
    The author could have used better wording to put this book in a more professional state. Other than that, it is good.
