A great product. I had to read this and write a book review for a class. It has 38 pages of actual text and the rest is supporting documents. It reads like a short introduction to the history of science from Aristotle and after. If you are looking for something more extensive try An Introduction to the History of Mathematics by Howard Eves (this is a book used for an entire semester course). This product is a good buy.

I bought this for my classroom and it is serviceable for my students. It gives them a good source of information on the topic for research purposes.
