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.

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.

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.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By archaeoamy on 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.

Our homeschooling family loves these books! Gets kids interested in math and inspires projects and exploration. My 11 year old read them himself over a few day period and he's not even a big math fan, he does love reading and stories so these books really speak to him.

Well worth the price! Even as an adult math teacher, I had things to learn from this book. It was an easy and entertaining read. I left it behind when I retired. I wish now that I still had it. Time to buy another! Great gift idea for kids.
