Howard Eves made a valuable contribution to the Dolciani Mathematical Exposition series. The twenty lectures included are a delight to read. They place each 'great moment' in its historical context and lay special emphasis on human aspects of each achievement. No algebra or geometry teacher should be without this book. Tom Walsh in The Mathematics Teacher. He has the knack of bringing ancient mathematics alive, at the same time relating it to modern ideas and developments. His work is readable and informative and indeed bears reading a second time. His exposition is clear and he is not content with generalities, but gives actual examples of early methods.
