Description



Book Synopsis



Mathematics has a history filled with brilliant minds and world-changing discoveries. It just needs to be made accessible. And that's exactly what The Mathematics Bible does. It describes the history and development of mathematics in easily understood language. It introduces the most important players, societies and cultures, like the Ancient Egyptians and Pythagoreans, and key figures such as Galileo, Dodgson, Babbage and Lovelace. It brings the ancient science and art of mathematics into the contemporary world of the 21st century.

Accessible, well-informed and fully illustrated, this is a book that shows perfectly just how varied and fascinating mathematics can be.

These definitive guides to their subjects together have sold over three million copies worldwide. Their success is undoubtedly owed to the comprehensiveness and quality of content, for an excellent price, and the smaller size is nonetheless filled with 400 illustrations.



About the Author



Colin Beveridge cannot understand why mathematics is not the most popular subject on the planet and he spends his life trying to make it so. After a PhD from St. Andrews in Scotland, he worked on NASA's Living With a Star program before returning to the UK in 2008, where he writes, teaches and gives talks about mathematics.
