This review is from: The Historical Roots of Elementary Mathematics (Dover Books on Mathematics) (Paperback)
This book is awesome. I can't believe cultures we generally view as primitive were so advanced in their mathematics.
this book opens a doorway into history through which a reader can view the development of some of mankind's greatest feats.
No student of mathematics should be without this book. It provides an excellent new view of the whole subject.
I'm not fully through the book yet, but what I have read so far has left me speechless.
