A review of the  paperback Second Edition in the
May 2016 Mathematics Teacher (online) says:  

“Although comprehensive, the book is very easy to navigate.  Readers can move sequentially from front to back or select one topic and focus on that; each topic has relevant graphics and examples and not too much mathematical or scientific jargon…. [It] is a useful book for any high school or college math teacher…. [I]t gives teachers a way to infuse math history into any math course.”
