“A delightful departure from the typical mathematics book…[it] is a must read for students, teachers, college professors, an anyone interested in mathematics.”

Mathematics Teacher

“[Posamentier’s] work is nothing short of comprehensive and remains the most standard work to represent Pythagorian thought in a modern era…. A dynamic read for stimulating your brain.”

San Francisco Book Review

“Posamentier explains well. He doesn’t condescend, and he assumes that we’ll follow what he has to say because he explains it in such an order that it’s very hard not to follow… It ought to be dull, but it’s not: it’s fascinating…. Posamentier is on the list of writers I’ll watch for, because I know now that if he writes about a subject then I will end up understanding it.”


“A fine addition to any math history library.”

The Bookwatch, The Midwest Book Review

“An enjoyable read and a good reference. Highly recommended.”
