The story of how we got our numbers – told through one mathematician's journey to find zero. It began with the early Babylonian cuneiform numbers, followed by later Greek and Roman numerals. The quest to find out where today's so-called Hindu-Arabic numbers came from leads him to India, Thailand, and ultimately into the wilds of Cambodia. Along the way he meets academics, jungle trekkers, smugglers, and archeological thieves.
