5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting!
I needed this book for one of my university courses "history of mathematics", but I found that I was actually interested in the other chapters too, the book covers a wide variety of countries and historical periods and notable mathematicians, and is very fascinating.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent History but language a bit dated and stuffy.
I'm new to the history of mathematics but it's been fascinating to read and begin to understand how mathematical thinking has evolved over the centuries. But some of the language feels like it was written way back in history too. Which it probably was. A little dated perhaps?
