Book Title: Men of Mathematics

Author: E.T. Bell

Book Description:

Knowing some life stories of the most famous mathematicians in history certainly makes learning their mathematics more exciting. This classic book covers the lives and achievements of mathematicians from Zeno to Poincare. I was fascinated the first time I read this book, and I still am.

An ideal book for both mathematicians and non-mathematicians. Highly recommended.
