The Book Of Numbers invites the reader to fraternize with famous families of numbers, appreciate the primacy of primes, fathom the fractions, imagine imaginary numbers, and investigate the infinite ones. The Book Of Numbers is unique as it ranges from a fascinating survey of number names, words and symbols to an explanation of the new phenomenon of surreal numbers (an extremely large yet infinitely small subclass of the most recent development of number theory). The Book Of Numbers is a fun and fascinating tour of numerical topics and concepts. It will have readers contemplating ideas they might never had thought were understandable - or even possible! Informative, fun reading for the nonspecialist general reader with an interest in the history and nature of mathematics.Conway, John H. is the author of 'Book of Numbers' with ISBN 9780387979939 and ISBN 038797993X.
