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.
