Excellent historical content and mathematical resource.

I was first exposed to this work at my grandfather's home when in the seventh grade. I read the biographic history and first topic (Egyptian arithmetic and fractions) in his copy. The next Christmas he gave me my own. At that time I could follow the technical parts of only three topics, but was thrilled to realize that I could keep pace with the top mathemeticians in the world, if only I'd been born 2,800 years ago. The book(s) made me decide to study mathematics seriously.

I strongly recomend the set, both as history and a series of interesting introductions to various topics in the field. While I can't bring myself to class this as a 'juvenile' work, I would also suggest that anyone with a high-school student even mildly into math, might look to this work to encourage them. ( )

A superb collection that made me want to be a mathematician. (Alas, I turned out not to be cut out for it.)

"A nonmathematician will not learn much mathematics from these volumes, although he is told a great deal about mathematics and about cognate subjects ... However, there is also a great deal here of value for the professional mathematician, collected from sources that are not on everyone's bookshelf. Some at least of this material will be helpful to teachers, and it would be hard to find any mathematician who will not be entertained by some of it, or who will not find something that is new to him."
