"If you want to know what mathematicians like Gauss, Euler and Dirichlet were doing...this book could be for you. It fills in many historical gaps, in a story which is largely unknown...This book is the result of work done by a serious historian of mathematics...If you are intrigued by such topics studied years ago but now largely forgotten...then read this book."

-The Mathematical Gazette (on the second edition)

"...must reading for every serious student of nineteenth century mathematics...represents a substantial contribution toward filling what is generally acknowledged to be an immense gap in the historical literature."

-ISIS (on the first edition)

"One among the most interesting books on the history of mathematics... Very stimulating reading for both historians of modern mathematics and mathematicians as well."

--Mathematical Reviews (on the first edition)

"The book contains an amazing wealth of material relating to the algebra, geometry, and analysis of the nineteenth century.... Written with accurate historical perspective and clear exposition, this book is truly hard to put down."

--Zentralblatt fur Mathematik (review of 1st edition)
