From the Back Cover:

Mathematics

"Boyer and Merzbach distill thousands of years of mathematics into this fascinating chronicle. From the Greeks to Gödel, the mathematics is brilliant; the cast of characters is distinguished; the ebb and flow of ideas is everywhere evident. ... Without doubt, this is and will long remain a classic one- volume history of mathematics and mathematicians who create it."
William Dunham, author of Journey Through Genius: The Great Theorems of Mathematics

"Both readable and scholarly ... a fine introduction to the topic."
J. David Bolter, author of Turing's Man

"When we read a book like A History of Mathematics, we get the picture of a mounting structure, ever taller and broader and more beautiful and magnificent and with a foundation, moreover, that is as untainted and as functional now as it was when Thales worked out the first geometrical theorems nearly twenty-six centuries ago."
Isaac Asimov (from the Foreword)
