4.0 out of 5 stars
Slow but steady wins the race, 1 May 2011
It was a bit elementary at first but it is one of the only mathematics books out there that, whilst still being accessible to a beginner, actually contains some mathematics. By the end there are some pretty heavy topics and yet I finished the book feeling as though I not only understood the history of the problems but understood the actual problems and solutions . I would definitely recommend this to any budding mathematicians like myself.
