Summary
This volume begins around 43,000 years ago with a notched baboon leg, the Lebombo bone (the very first mathematical object in the world) and rushes us past Hindu numerals and the invention of zero, via Pythagoras, Pascal, and probability, right up to the present day, with big data and the maths that rules our digital lives
