Devlin's choice of material is excellent, and he is to be praised for the clarity and accuracy with which he presents it. (Martin Gardner New York Review of Books (of the first ed.))
Devlin makes the beauty of math apparent, the most esoteric of concepts sing. If more scientists wrote with Devlin's simplicity and feeling, the world would be a much more informed place. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

Are there are Golden Age in Mathematics? ... May be. Devlin show a bridge for us.
Devlin is one of those who excels at writing popular math. His writing is clear and intructional without being academic. Though you will be hard pressed to find proofs or any equations or formulas in this book.
This book is targeted simply to the masses, which I am all for if it gives someone a reason not to be mad at math since they had to take Algebra 2.
Devlin does a great job of developing the history and puts the math into context. Some of this is not very new, except that technology has made it possible to provide proofs or find an application beyond theory. (okay that was pretty generic of statment ).
For math types this will not be anything new, but that is fine, as long as it encourages the masses.
