## Dr. Euler's Fabulous Formula: |

"It is very difficult to sum up the greatness of Euler. . . . This excellent book goes a long way to explaining the kind of mathematician he really was." "The author conducts a fascinating tour through pure and applied mathematics, physics, and engineering, from the ethereal heights of number theory to the earthiness of constructing speech scramblers. . . . [T]his is a marvelous book that will illuminate the mathematical landscape of complex numbers and their many applications." "This is a book for mathematicians who enjoy historically motivated mathematical explanations on a high mathematical level." "It is a 'popular' book, written for a general reader with some mathematical background equivalent to a first-year undergraduate course in the UK."
"If you ever wondered about the beauties and powers of mathematics, this book is a treasure trove. Paul Nahin uses Euler's formula as the magic key to unlock a wealth of surprising consequences, ranging from number theory to electronics, presented clearly, carefully, and with verve." "The range and variety of topics covered here is impressive. I found many little gems that I have never seen before in books of this type. Moreover, the writing is lively and enthusiastic and the book is highly readable."
