5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC! February 29, 2000
Format:Paperback
A wonderful collection of short stories about mathematicians from many different time periods, including Pythagoras, Hypatia, Isaac Newton and 12 others. Makes great family reading, as the book is aimed probably for 9-12 year olds, but is definitely interesting on an adult level, too. Great for stimulating interest in mathematics, history and philosophy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for adults and children September 29, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is a great book for adults and children. My seven year old has me reading a chapter each night to her. The book illustrates the qualities required to be a great mathematician and has many interesting stories about them. My only wish is there were more chapters and mathematicians.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! March 15, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent book--be sure to get both volumes. Only wish I would have known about these a long time ago! The different chapters (one per person) make fabulous, quick read alouds that hold my almost-eight-year-old's attention beautifully, but keep me interested as well! Great mix of people from all over the world, both men and women.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting stories, well-written January 13, 2009
Format:Paperback
I got this for my 8-yr-old son, but ended up reading it myself. I think I will read them with him, as some of the concepts may be over his head. It is still interesting for the stories alone, I'd just like him to really get some math education out of it. Not difficult to grasp for older children who are already introduced to algebra, geometry, etc.

This isn't the type of book you'll want to read all at once. Each story about an individual has different lessons, different concepts, that you'll want to discuss after reading. Great for home-schoolers or parents wanting to enrich their child's education.

Very happy with the book, now I've got to get Volume 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Supplement to Math and Science July 30, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The stories included about great mathematicians are short, entertaining, and informative. These cover a lot of history, mathematical concepts, and a lot of interesting information about how these great minds worked and how they came to their discoveries. I like also that these stories put math into a real context that shows why it is important and what types of problems it can solve...like how to make a donkey cross a stream, or how to move a giant boat without wheels. Both volumes are great. I wish I'd read these when I was in school...they are still useful and informative as an adult though. Our whole family enjoys these books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Reading January 31, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We read this book as we were traveling across the US in our motorhome. Our girls loved the stories; and even the adults ended up being interested in the story of each person. Math can be fun.
