"Every chapter has a remarkable collection of exercises of various degrees of difficulty and contains a wealth of historical information, which makes interesting reading."
Mathematical ReviewsSee more reviewsThe book is easy to read...The feature of the book that pleased me the most is the number of problems that are included. Not only does each section end with a large selection of problems, but each chapter also carries a number of supplementary exercises.
