Zero – the Biography of a Dangerous Idea

That’s the name of the book I’m currently reading. Or, I should say, trying to read. No, I’m actually reading it, it’s understanding the math and physics that has me flummoxed. I feel like I’m back in high school physics class trying to keep my eyes open while wondering how the teacher could be saying that many words in English that made no sense to me, even though English is my first language.

More to the point, I realize that I recognize most of the names in math and physics from the Big Bang Theory. Who said TV couldn’t be educational and funny at the same time? I still have no idea what they’re saying, but I recognize the names. That must count for something.
