Wonderful set of essays articles on advances in math and the mathematicians themselves.
It could be a better book, if they d had the energy to rewrite the book to be consistent and less repetitive.The articles are arranged by topic Sometimes two subsequent articles need to define a concept, so both of them do it.Sometimes the articles seem to assume the reader knows math Sometimes they don t and they call integral an infinite sum Terence Tao is overrepresented in the first half of the book.
