Reviews

"This selection of letters by the great mathematician John von Neumann (1903-1957) has been edited with remarkable care and expertise. Nearly all of his letters are published here for the first time. ...The extensive introductory comments by the editor (pp. 1-40) furnish important background information that will prove itself useful, especially for those readers who cannot rely on a thorough knowledge of von Neumann's seminal contributions to the foundations of mathematics, mathematical logic, quantum mechanics, quantum logic, computer science, and game theory."
-- Mathematics and Mechanics

"...this fine volume of selected letters will be of great interest to mathematicians, scientists, educators, and in particular those interested in the history of the fields to which John von Neumann contributed so much."
-- Historia Mathematica
