    A fresh lively wonderful read given the subject matter I recommend highly Published in 1894 it predates many profound discoveries and creations of the 20th century so be advisedOne caution the hard copy reprint I found had a number of pages missing and the version I bought from Kindle was terrible with regard to display of formulae Still between the two I got by and am glad I did

    This is very badly done Very long sections read like a list of bullet points Important contributions were made by to S1 by A B C The book attempts too much so we also learn only the barest or else no details about the lives of individual mathematicians But the worse deficiency is that on the occasions when FC describes some snippet of mathematics it is inevitably cryptic and with high probability egregiously wrong Here just one exampleSuch was the problem of the isochronous curve to find the curve along which a body falls with uniform velocityIt is disappointing but perhaps not too surprising that FC's publisher hadn't assigned a mathematically versed editor But then I would expect the author to exercise great care in checking for accuracy FC is also very outdated The best part of the book might be his discussion of the earliest historic accomplishments for instance the development of different counting systems Nowadays we take a comfortable and practical counting system for granted but it took long to develop and as in other areas inappropriate notation was for a long time a serious impediment to progress
