The Universal History of Numbers!

We just got the coolest book in: The Universal History of Numbers by Georges Ifrah.
It covers the beginning of numbers from Cro-Magnon Man up to modern western scientific notation. It includes Sumerian, Mesopotamian, Egyptian and Hittite systems, plus the Mayans and the Indians.

Not bad for a paperback costing $22.95!
