    Title: Book of Nothing
    Author: JOHN D. BARROW

    One of our foremost mathematicians and cosmologists – John Barrow has a proven ability to make complex ideas easily accessible to the reader. Beginning with ancient civilizations, he explores how the zero came into being, its rocky reception in Europe, and the early avoidance and eventual acceptance of the void by Christianity. Investigating the concept of nothing through the work of writers from the ancient Greeks to the present, he examines mathematics, cosmology, theology and physics to reveal the nothing that is at the heart of most things. Finally, Barrow spotlights recent exciting discoveries in astronomy about the nature of the vacuum which are dramatically affecting scientific explanations of the universe.
