From the reviews:

“This volume primarily consists of a very detailed examination of Recorde’s four major mathematical books. … For the graduate student in the history of mathematics, this thorough and detailed work would be valuable.” (M. D. Derk, ACM Computing Reviews, March, 2012)

“This book fills a gap in historical biography that has existed for far too long. … The majority of the chapters describe Recorde’s life and career, but four are devoted to the description and analysis of his four mathematical works … for which he is most famous. … an excellent book. I can recommend it.” (John Denniss, The Mathematical Association of America, April, 2012)
