From the reviews:

"This volume primarily consists of a very detailed examination of Recorde's four major mathematical books. ... For the graduate student in the history of mathematics, this thorough and detailed work would be valuable." (M. D. Derk, ACM Computing Reviews, March, 2012)

"This book fills a gap in historical biography that has existed for far too long. ... The majority of the chapters describe Recorde's life and career, but four are devoted to the description and analysis of his four mathematical works ... for which he is most famous. ... an excellent book. I can recommend it." (John Denniss, The Mathematical Association of America, April, 2012)
