Zero - the biography of a dangerous idea
The later part of the book looks at the concepts of zero and infinity in physics. Concepts looked at include absolute zero, the ultraviolet catastrophe and zero point energy. This is well written, giving a clear flavour of the ideas, without needing technicalities.
The book is fast moving devoting a couple of pages to each topic before moving on. To a large extent this succeeds, it has a lot of material of interest without getting boring. However, I did sometimes feel that some subjects weren't particularly related to zero, and that more space could have been given to those that were. That said, it was an enjoyable read, and has wide ranging appeal, being suitable for anybody who likes a bit of light reading on scientific and mathematical subjects.
