Reviews

"An inspired piece of intellectual history."-- Los Angeles Times"It is mathematics presented as a series of works of art; a fascinating lingering over individual examples of ingenuity and insight. It is mathematics by lightning flash."-- Isaac Asimov"Dunham deftly guides the reader through the verbal and logical intricacies of major mathematical questions, conveying a splendid sense of how the greatest mathematicians from ancient to modern times presented their arguments."--Ivars Peterson, author of The Mathematical Tourist
