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.

Very disappointing. I expected some humor, but this was dry and boring.

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.

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.

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