I really enjoyed this book. Just the right combination of survey level and detail, highlighting key theorems and directions in the primary branches of mathematics since Euclid.
This eBook version can be a little tough to read in spots since it was converted using OCR. Some diagrams are scanned images, but many equations are OCR'ed which makes them unintelligible. That's a shame. But, still, it's a great book.
