    This is a GREAT book though it wasn't exactly what I was expecting when I first bought itThe book functions like an encyclopedia taking you from person to person and place to place throughout the history of mathematics It's of a who's who with a few gems scattered about I've never forgetten Smith's assessment concerning George of Trebizond He was a uarrelsome man of little honor to science to letters or to mannersFrom what I understand Vol II is focused on specific advancements in Mathematics and how these discoveries came about The first volume is still an excellent read and will be thoroughly enjoyable for anyone who considers the mathematician to be just as noble a scientist as all the others we celebrate

    I love the History of Science and Mathematics and this book was very interesting and chock full of a massive amount of information I read it slowly over time I will now proceed to volume two

    The beginning of this book was utterly fantastic but once I hit the survey portion of Volume 1 the content dropped like a rock and I found myself back in the realm of dates and names ad nauseum I'm looking forward to Volume 2 but I may need to take a little break first I hope it gets away from the biographical surveys and back to the math and all its interrelationsIf any of you are curious about the book and looking for its strengths I direct you to the section toward the start regarding pre history and each culture's radix There's such food for thought that I had to read it a paragraph at a time savoring over each idea letting them dissolve into my understanding Brilliant stuff
