Interesting book - with lots of bugs in the kindle version
am 4. Januar 2013
I am a teacher for mathematics and liked the book very much. It provided me with interesting stories about important mathematicians, physicians and of course the number e that I can use in school to fill the names of Newton, Bernoulli, Leibniz and Euler with life. I also think it is suited for advanced pupils, because most of the math in it is not very hard to understand.
What I did not like was the huge amount of errors in the kindle edition: In nearly every chapter are errors like the use of "l" (the letter) instead of "1" (the number), exponents are written as factors (i.e. "x2" for x squared) and so on. This is not really a big problem because of the math, but still it is disturbing and reduced the fun reading it.
Whoever is responsible for editing this book for the kindle-edition: Please edit it again and take a little more time. This is really an interesting book and does not deserve this amount of bugs.
The missing star is only for the bugged kindle-edition. The printed version may be better, but I did not read it.
