What a wonderful little book: it is beautifully written and has wonderful photographs and illustrations ... Moreover it accomplishes its purpose, to give us a glimpse into the nature and times of John Napier.' History of Mathematics Newsletter 'This work offers a fascinating insight to a man whose name is know by all Scots, but whose work and mind reached far beyond the fields of maths and science.' Life and Work 'Although this is slender volume it is a delight to read, with numerous illustrations enhancing the well-written text. Not only are Napier's life and inventions described, but there are chapters which put these in context.' Mathematical Association News
