Numbers are at the heart of the existence of the universe and everything in it. Yet, a lot of us have little understanding of their creation, let alone their part in philosophy, art, music, physics, literature, religion, and computing.

Dr. Bentley’s fascinating history of the origins of numbers will unlock the secrets of these things that we take for granted and shows how numbers seem to take on human characteristics – as they can be perfect or irrational, amicable or prime, real or imaginary.

From zero to infinity, learn about the way numbers have shaped our world, discover amazing facts, and enjoy the pure beauty of mathematical logic.
