Reviews


"This is an interesting book, and despite the shortcomings mentioned at the beginning of this review, it's an absorbing book, borne of a great enthusiasm for mathematics, and I shall continue to dip into it for a long time to come."  (Journal of the British Society for the History of Mathematics, 1 March 2014)

"Recommended. Mathematics and history of mathematics collections serving lower-division undergraduates and above". (Choice, 1 November 2010)
