236 pages, Figs, tabs
Covers 4000 years of trigonometric history - a rich tapestry of mathematics, geography, astronomy and physics.
If you think trigonometry has no more surprises for you, read Trigonometric Delights, Eli Maor will change your mind. The book presents the subject and its history the way they should be presented - it's a delight to read. - Paul J. Nahin, author of Duelling Idiots and Other Probability Puzzlers "This book will appeal to a general audience interested in the history of mathematics. I highly recommend [it] to teachers who would like to ground their lessons in the sort of mathematical investigations that were undertaken throughout history." - Richard S. Kitchen, Mathematics Teacher
