Product description

Review

‘Gordon Roberts’s new biography of Robert Recorde is a wonderfully readable account of this fascinating Tudor scientist, his difficult career in times of religious and political dangers, and his innovative and remarkably entertaining textbooks. It provides context to help the reader fully appreciate the work of this important pioneer of mathematics education.’

Professor Tony Mann, Director, University of Greenwich

‘A Welsh scholar of great influence, the Tudor mathematics educator Robert Recorde holds a permanent place in the history of mathematics as the inventor of the equals sign ... He was also a physician, a poet, and surveyor of mines and monies, who was prosecuted for libel and ended his life in prison. This engagingly written book presents the ups and downs of Recorde’s eventful life with great clarity.’

Emeritus Professor Robin Wilson, The Open University
