      this is a really nifty idea. Some of the numbers are a bit dated (counting days forward from some set date, instead of backwards from publication date, woulda helped a bit with that) but even so, I'm finding it utterly fascinating, and a really interesting way to look at numbers so big our brains really can't comprehend them.

      Absolutely the best and most entertaining conceptualization of the sheer size of one million that I have ever seen.

      A book with 1,000,000 dots!! I got this book when it was first published in 1970. I have used it in my math classes. I love it.
