Description
"'As dazzling as first love,' is how Bertrand Russell described his initial encounter with Euclid. As a mathematician who understands what Russell felt, [David] Berlinski guides his readers through the intellectual wonderland that the ancient Greek geometer created in his epoch-making treatise, the Elements. In writing at once geometrically precise and disarmingly conversational, Berlinski explores the imposing edifice that Euclid erected on a foundation of just five deceptively simple axioms.... An impressively concise distillation of the wizardry that transforms points, lines, and planes into sheer genius."—Booklist (starred review)

"A playful yet deep excursus through Euclid's Elements, from veteran mathematician Berlinski…. The author's storytelling is clear, crisp and emotive, and he brings Euclid's little-known life alive."—Kirkus Reviews
