I was reluctant at first, thought what, it's the trend now, a book for every number?! but then i got hooked on it for weeks. it's insightful and original, i enjoyed every chapter of it.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Typesetting and other numerous typographic errors spoil a good book 20 mai 2016
Par Mark Huth - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Most math books read far better on iPad than a Kindle. I had hoped the same would be the case for this book. However, the formulas are largely unreadable, being displayed as fuzzy grey smears that don't get larger with increasing font size or attempt to stretch with the iPad gesture. Moreover, the number of typos in formulas and expressions made reading comprehension difficult despite having an adequate math background. I eventually figured out that "In" (capital I with serifs) was actually ln for natural log and that an italic l was the division slash. # was not equal, and on and on. As a result of the extreme carelessness used in what is obviously an automatic scanning and recognition of a manuscript, I cannot recommend the Kindle version of this book.

As for the content, once I learned to read gibberish, I found the math interesting and the story delightful for amateur mathematicians. Many forgotten facts returned and even a few new connections were made, such as the sinh and cosh relation to the imaginary circular functions. I recommend reading this in print format and not as an e-book. The chapter on Euler rocks!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Superb book for the right audience 11 décembre 2013
Par Gary B. Robinson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book aims to give the reader a deep understanding of the number e, but also of other things that turn out to be related through the e^(pi*i) + 1 = 0 equation, like the meaning of imaginary numbers. It also goes into the history of how these concepts were arrived at, which is great because it shows the wild, purely intuitive leaps some earlier mathematicians such as Newton made, that in some ways had no theoretical support at the time, and which were often controversial, but which turned out to be incredibly powerful. So it demonstrates the courage of going with one’s intuitions. In that sense it’s about the process of scientific discovery and creativity in general.

I'm not sure who the ideal audience is for the book (other than me, a guy in my 50's who was a math major but does not have an advanced degree, and who works on things like spam filtering algorithms). It seems like you have to have a nontrivial math background, but not an extreme one, to read it. I think it could be quite inspirational for math-oriented kids who can handle it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is a great book with the equations to back up the story 23 mai 2016
Par Michael Bagley - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is a great book with the equations to back up the story. Some people rated the book lower because of the equations, but please realize that it's easier to skip over too many equations than to move to other sources for the equations that really tell the story of mathematics. I wish books like this had a strong equation foundation. To fully appreciate the significance of these concepts, you really need the equations.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 The Kindle version is terrible 23 juin 2013
Par Solomon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The book is very interesting.
BUT DON'T BUY THE KINDLE VERSION!!!! The men who typed the text don't know mathematics at all, for example they typing In x (with big I) and not ln x ( with small L). This is one of the many mistakes and miss types in the electronic vesion. I don't know what about a "classic" version of book, but the kindle vesion is terrible, hard to read even to me who have learned calculus in college and I know the subject. The pictures of equtions is very small and hard to see what is going on, half of mathematical symbols is represented by □.
I'm giving 3 stars.
Sorry for my poor English :)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The book is great but the Kindle formatting needs work 31 mai 2015
Par JBern - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The book is great but the Kindle formatting needs work. There are numerous typographical errors throughout this book. For example, the use of the capital letter "I" for the number "1". This problem is not unique to this book. Many of the technical books I own in Kindle format have this problem. I would suggest to Amazon that they either hire a technical editor or work more closely with the publishers of their technical books to do a final read-through prior to offering it to customers.
