4.0 out of 5 stars The Story Of Mathematics
This book just arrived in the post today from Amazon. Lovely book. Subject matter well presented. You won't need to be a geek to enjoy. One word of warning though. My hardback copy arrived in a damaged condition from Amazon. The binding had come apart. This did not happen in transit as the bubble-wrap and envelope were intact. I await a response from Amazon. I am left...

3.0 out of 5 stars Easy-to-read overview
This is a very easy-to-read and well-illustrated overview of the history of some aspects of maths. I would like to have seen more depth, and more coverage of more complex mathematical topics, but that would no doubt have made the book unsuitable for its target readership.

I used this (paperback) book when studying The Story of Maths with the OU - excellent. I bought the Kindle version when I lost the original.

A very good book. The way thing are put over to you is just about right not to technical and not too simplistic it leaves you with a good understanding.
