I'm appreciating the author of this book

I love this book so much I've kept multiple copies to loan out and had to buy it again a couple times because I lost one. This is an excellent book as a text, a reference, or some leisure reading for the nerdy amongst us. I can also recommend it as a helpful aide to parents trying to act as tutors to their children: this book covers all kinds of useful tricks from basic arithmetic to calculus.

This is by far the best historical reference to the beginnings of mathematics ever written. I have read this book cover to cover more than once and referenced it at least one paper I have written. It has proven to be a most useful resource.
