Reviews

"The author has achieved a remarkable feat, introducing a naΓ―ve reader to a rich history without compromising the insights and without leaving out a delicious detail. . . . An awe-inspiring experience."--Choice
"This is an excellent book about a great man and a timeless formula."--Charles Ashbacher, Journal of Recreational Mathematics
"It was a pleasure reading this book, and I recommend it to everyone who is not afraid of mathematical arguments and has ever wondered what this field of 'rubbersheet geometry' is about. You will not be disappointed."--Jeanine Daems, Mathematical Intelligencer
"David Richeson's Euler's Gem does an outstanding job of explaining serious mathematics to a general audience. . . . The book succeeds at showing the reader a lot of attractive mathematics with a well-chosen level of technical detail."--Jeremy L. Martin, Notices of the AMS
Everything in the book is very well illustrated with insightful graphics that, together with the text, make results almost like being obvious.---Adhemar Bultheel, European Mathematical Society
