Anmeldelser

«Lively, satisfying, good at explaining difficult concepts»

The Sunday Times

«Great and highly accessible read – even for the less numerically gifted»

i, ‘Top Non-Fiction’

«A delightful journey through some of the lesser known highways and byways of mathematics»

Ananyo Bhattacharya, author of The Man from the Future

«The history of math is typically taught from an exclusively Greco-Eurocentric perspective as a parade of great men. This significantly distorts reality. Mathematics has been invented in one form or another by every culture on Earth, and the exclusion of women and people of color from traditional narratives is particularly glaring. Kitagawa and Revell do an excellent job of broadening our view to the far more vibrant, collaborative, diverse, and interesting history . . . Mathematics is the most powerful tool humans ever invented, and this book is a welcome corrective to our understanding of how it came to be»
