Men of MathematicsHere is the classic, muchread introduction to the craft and history of mathematics by E.T. Bell, a leading figure in mathematics in America for half a century. Men of Mathematics accessibly explains the major mathematics, from the geometry of the Greeks through Newton's calculus and on to the laws of probability, symbolic logic, and the fourth dimension. In addition, the book goes beyond pure mathematics to present a series of engrossing biographies of the great mathematicians  an extraordinary number of whom lived bizarre or unusual lives. Finally, Men of Mathematics is also a history of ideas, tracing the majestic development of mathematical thought from ancient times to the twentieth century. This enduring work's clear, often humorous way of dealing with complex ideas makes it an ideal book for the nonmathematician.

This is a good book to read if you want to master GRE wordlist. I find about three GRE wordlist entries on each page. It's hard to read for a nonnative reader.
Not a mathematics book. A good way to learn that the great men of mathematics were just as normal or abnormal as you are.
