This is a look at mathematics, its history and its relevance today. The book takes the reader on a journey through the ideas and visions of the men behind the numbers, from the cryptic poems of Tarraglia to the Bishop of Berkley and his disdain of Newtonian calculus. This book tells the story of mathematics across the centuries. It shows how the mathematics of yesterday are the mathematics of today, Pythagoras' theorem is as true now as it was 25 centuries ago. It attempts to show how mathematics has helped to define the universe and our place in it.
