About this book

These brilliantly told, linked biographies give us the stories of two of the greatest mathematicians of this century. Well received in their original editions, these classic books paint a poignant picture of the history of mathematics during the past century through the lives of these two great friends and colleagues.

From the reviews: EMS NEWSLETTER "...fascinating and well written..." THE BULLETIN OF MATHEMATICS BOOKS "Originally published to great acclaim, both books explore the dramatic scientific history expressed in the lives of these two great scientists and described in the lively, nontechnical writing style of Constance Reid."
