I read an interesting book a few months back.
Here's Looking at Euclid: A Surprising Excursion Through the
Astonishing World of Math by Alex Bellos


Please read the following blog that appeared in National Geographic
Alex’s Adventures in Numberland – Intelligent Travel

From his interview

Bellos is an engaging and down-to-earth guide in this thought-provoking trip through the history of math’s cross-cultural development and application. His globe-trekking has unearthed fascinating factoids concerning numbers, calculations, and how different groups of people use them. He reveals, for example, that the Munduruku people of the Amazon can only count to five, and there is no word for “million” in India.
