    You might find the book “Billions & Billions” by Carl Sagan interesting.. he talks about many things but one of which is addressing how the populace has a superficial understanding of numbers (which includes me) but will hear huge numbers . millions-billions-trillions.. zillions.. and get a “ahhh” of a cookie-cutter association..
