Editorial Reviews


"Every mathematics deparmental common room should have this book (and its predecessor, Mathematical People). Concludes Constance Reid: "In spite of the habit of mind that all mathematicians share and the common joy that they take in their subject, there is no such person as the typical mathematician."
--Mathematics Magazine.
" . . .[the] idea that the talk of math whizzez might be both instructive and fun led to the book Mathematical People, a golden oldie in 1985 . . .
[The] copioslu illustrated [More Mathematical People] is an end - to - end delight. . . What's conveyed in More Mathemarical People is chiefly zest; if zests is not a mathematical truth, it's truth about where math comes from."
--Hugh Kenner's, Byte
"This handsome collection of interviews can be taken as a continuation of the book Mathematical People. In these extremely entertaining interviews, we learn about different approaches to mathematics and a good deal of history, how these mathematicians found their special concerns and their hobbies."
--D.J. Struik, Mathematical Review.
Praise for the first volume Mathematical People:
" . . . Mathematical People often makes us feel that we are at a cocktail party having a pleasant chat with a friendly person who happens to be a mathematician."
--The New York time Book Review
"Straightforward and lively throughout, the mathematical people here collected speak on all sides os the field's burning issues."
--San Francisco Chronicle
