5 / 5 OlenFormed: Hardcover has Bought 2 copies like presents. Feedback Of both a lot of good.

4 / 5 SantinaFormed: Hardcover Ossia a better book in a subject of mathematicians partorisca any one.

4 / 5 ChungFormed: Hardcover Einstein has said that our universe obeys laws of character that can be expressible in a tongue of calculation. Some oppositions of author in this elegant and drives to an importance of calculation that there is forecasting can that give it the function of entity creates our world. A lot they dread a mystery of calculation; there is not any need to has read to join you time this scholarly account.

The calculation means bone or pebble in Latins. Without the calculation there would be any oven microwave or computer. Television and the radios would not be never possible state. An untangling of a human genome would have been impossible, an atom would not be remained, and the landing of moon would remain the sleep. A calm author show you can admire calculation without being able to use it.

The calculation roughly is that it quantifies a tax of transmission. It is based on two fundamental ideas: derived and integrals. A prime minister examines tax partorisca change while some models last an accumulation of transmission. East enables, for example, partorisca calculate a distance the vehicle has travelled when so only his speed is known. An idea of the function is fundamental to calculate. For example, a distance fallen for the organism is the function of time, and a place of the number is the function of a number. A sines and cosines of the corners are functions of some corners.

Calculate it differential informs to a process partorisca take the enormous question and slicing he the very tiny pieces. These are solved and then together place again, the process has called integral calculation. Strogatz Concurr That the calculation has been invented for Archimedes in a third ECB of century. This is to contest for some mathematicians. It was refined for Galileo, Newton and Leibniz. Both Newton and Leibniz have said has invented he a late 17th century. It revolutionises Mathematical and has left partorisca solve a code of our universe partorisca discover some orbits of planets, tides, and a lot, much more. The differential equations leave partorisca do all this.

Ossia The very useful account of as the calculation has developed the laws of the newton of motion and gravity. Each inorganic thing in some curves of universes to his principles. Highly recommended.

Remarce: This is not the prime minister roughly calculation. There is a lot another desire of available books learns like this partorisca use calculation.

An interesting book. So only there is @@give join me few origins of calculation predate Newton and Leibniz for a lot of centuries. It is probably unavoidable in the book of this class that some of some explanations look unnecessary and another looks almost entirely disappeared â that it is obvious to a reader often will be quite perplexing to another.

An interesting and understandable history of calculation, of roughly 250 BC to a present day. I have it quell'has thought always starts go with Newton and Leibniz, but apparently the elements of him am around be for thousands of years. I have done the pocolos ran of calculation on some years, and the desire would read this first book, has dipped everything to context, and he all bit it more understandable.

A word to warn for Kindle user be careful that the source has chosen, otherwise some of some mathematical symbols can disappear! I have found empty space where 1/3 and pi (the symbol) would have to that it has been, until I experimented with some sources, and has on burst.

5 / 5 JoshuaI look close daunted in my books of mathematician with pages and of the pages of indigestible discharge-hooks (integral signs) but seat more authorised now to face them with which the pleasant ramble by means of this sweet but thorough historical account. Of Archimedes the Fourier via Newton and another a line of history hangs joint really well with some episodes chosen well and historical detail that left so only in total admiration of some analytical alcohols of ours predecessors. Sometimes it is good to look behind in like this takes to here. It is humbling to remark that we are so only ready today reasons another before it was included readier! A very very read!

4 / 5 ValarieI amour to study a history of Ideas and ideas in mathematicians

5 / 5 AlessandraHe, is the book adds but think that it has taken even more like of a cure some editors had taken to present he in sumptuous form. A paper was like this white and acute . . . .

More highly recommended like the hardback. (Any quell'enthusiast in a creation of coverage, this in spite of :-))

5 / 5 NannieAmazing book! A recommended read for parents that is struggling with explaining mathematician for boys.

5 / 5 CareyOssia A better book in a subject of mathematicians partorisca any one.

4 / 5 AileneVery Read, there is enjoyed a lot and gave ideas to write programs of fun computer.

Has bought this partorisca my husband, the one who is the mathematician friki. You love it.

A book is not aimed in of the graduates of mathematicians (like some reviewers looks partorisca take outrage in), but is the book of fun episodes in that spends when the mathematics goes bad. You are an entertaining read, and mine 10 old year also read in a seating. Anything concealed taken the 10 old year partorisca read in mathematicians, the physics or the engineering is well in my books.

Likes -sew them to to you likes a Ig Nobel is or books for Randall Munroe, then will enjoy this. If you are looking for the serious mathematics textbook then this is not he (neither allege to be in any point).

5 / 5 JocelynLikes -sew them to to you likes a Ig Nobel is or books for Randall Munroe, then will enjoy this. If you are looking for the serious mathematics textbook then this is not he (neither allege to be in any point).

Ossia The fun book . It is enjoyable and the frames want to maintain reading inclusos although you really need to create early morning.

But is not like this very so many Things partorisca Do and Do in a Fourth Dimension.

This aim of book like the fault partorisca comprise the mathematician can cause horrific questions, the be of the deaths of mass, loss of billions, or having your almost sucked pilot out of an aeroplane cockpit. But yes for small-has averted catastophe is your thing would be Rachel read better Maddow Drift.

In an end, thinks that of the games of question to lose to two subjects. In the first place it was, it is trying to dip the comedy and the together tragedy, and secondly there there is simply a lot quite mathematical in him. There is the bit to speak roughly that diverse of things, but little in a way of equations or in-exploitation of depth. The things have limited more in a real world, and this mathematics of mark of the fewer interesting limitations.

Enjoys Parker is another calm work probably will enjoy this, but calm will not be blown went by.

Really that interests to reserve which covers several questions of ways have been caused for errors of mathematicians. A book is written in the lighthearted way and a lot enjoyable still if any one the any knowledge of particular mathematician (although like the mathematician also would have enjoyed some questions to solve!).

What negative only to say is that it was like this engrossed read that all really quickly and would like me some more please.

4 / 5 GennaWhat negative only to say is that it was like this engrossed read that all really quickly and would like me some more please.

This book was the bit of the left down. Some in fact have based the examples in the mathematicians could have done the piece of good magazine, but instead have the book typeset in the big source and cushioned was the on 300 pages. There are some interesting examples of 'fences and questions of estacas, the binary numbers that wraps round to start with again in 0 in of the computers, held of random numbers, and errors of units and combining different levels of precision. Ossia The majority of a mathematics. To do a book an interesting plus and more along, an author then has to that take loaned of the the others discipline likes them to them the creation of product, management and science of human factors. A mechanic that confuses two measures of rays in an aircraft, and some failures of processes that has left this to never spend, is not really soyaths', and neither is bad in that drawn those doors of fire in those builds that opened for interior and to enclosed jam in running over it. The mathematician can be one 'queen of all the sciences' but concealed does not mean it can appropriate other disciplines to try and he more interesting, without giving any credit. In place of this book, spent 'A Creation of Daily Things' for Donald Norman - is very better. Two stars because ossia roughly 2/5 of the book of examples of interesting mathematician, and 3/5 to cushion appropriated other disciplines, reasons apparently does not have quite mathematical interesting to do the whole book. Ossia The shame , like the idea of a book appealed, which was reason I bought it.

4 / 5 GoldaIn general, those interest and amusingly writing. Like the user of time with a longitude of spreadsheets, this in spite of, has found a chapter in Excel that worries . He the years have read to somewhere that roughly 50 of all spreadsheets contain errors. According to researching quoted in Humble Pi a figure a lot this more afterwards to 90. It does not doubt a figure but thought it probably so only applied to a spreadsheets that have built. It is scaring to think that it also applies to do really serious.

4 / 5 ElinA very interesting and enjoyable book in an application of mathematical concepts and quirks to real world-wide chances. A lot of some examples relate to questions in programing software and engineering. An emphasis is less in a mathematics and more in some errors. Value and utmost entertainment the bed.

5 / 5 FlorettaThis glorious book would have to that be read by EACH ENGINEER or Planner or Writer of Specification or Any the one who has Any entrance anything to a delivery/of manufacture/of the drawing/of specification accuses. It is eminently readable and the comparisons the personal daily life is has done easily. It is scaring that easily few things can be stray, and can then loss of cause of life. It informs to the number of specifics in a doctor, automotive and aerospace fields, this in spite of some points is doing applies to almost all the world-wide everywhere. If that can have given 7 or 8 stars would have. READ L! Please?

Is hard in of the places... Still I have any idea the one who transitive the data in fact could be, as if you are taste would recommend to go dulcemente, but in of general very good. It helps that you needn't âtakeâ each part entirely to move on... More still it was stuck to the some around understood place the 3.

A title can be the little controversial. A lot some âerrors of mathematicianâ have mentioned has caused the significant number of deaths, like âthe comedyâ is the poor election of words. Yes, I know it means in his original sense, but still. It recommends.

This in spite of so only 3/4 is cost reading. A last neighbourhood of a book has not been adds. It was to quote ready to finalise this book when it do. They are this in spite of steps the time of plot googling all a real life the chances have mentioned.

A fab book, any only partorisca mathematical nerds. Totally fascinating and writing in an easy to follow, humorous and entertaining way. Some of some histories are unbelievable but some. Well researched and substantiated also. Recommended partorisca any to to which likes fascinating facts, humorous histories and a quirks of human character near his mix of mathematics. Cleverly Fact.

5 / 5 FlorentinoHas tried like this the book but I have found he frustratingly tedious. More roughly code of computer then anything more! No like this the like this pleasant or educational averages as I thought it would be. It has preferred Weapon of Destruction of Mathematics.

4 / 5 SorayaThe reader softly headed to some ways in that the people have there is unfortunately does deceptions when that looks for to apply mathematician in a lot of different situations.

5 / 5 VioletaWell value the bed partorisca this interested in a foibles of 'a bit of sympathetic, but that lacking partorisca know regarding the apply'.

Has bought this partorisca more, of his commentaries one before splits of a book is extremely good and very pleasant. With which this an apparently taken book technician and does not enjoy this part of him.

4 / 5 LisbethOne adds read, easily five stars. You recommend this book to any interested in as mathematical, the engineering and the coding impact our daily lives in ways seen and hid. A content is very interesting and diverse. I have loved the fashion of an author, humour, and a diverse interesting tangents. I have listened in this book in a soymena or Less' podcast, are was now partorisca buy an author is another book sees on Amazon.

4 / 5 ElouiseAre not the mathematician but this book maintained me to us interested and entertained of some extremes to the another...

4 / 5 StephaniInteresting information in a main, but no quite like this engrossing to the equal that have had any 5 stars partorisca me.

In spite of am happy of the recommend to those with the bent partorisca mathematical.

5 / 5 CassiIn spite of am happy of the recommend to those with the bent partorisca mathematical.

A book is an original , but probably a prime minister of . As Such alcohols adds can take 'he' as wrong whilst having brains a measure of planets will surprise. Ossia Past money very good and well can leave dumbfounded.

4 / 5 LannieHas loved absolutely this book. I have bought he partorisca mine 13I edges partorisca his anniversary and has directed so only so only partorisca take loaned he of him. The humour of Parker calms is so only my cup of the tea and I have maintained that they have to that read the bits were to a rest of a familiar because they have loved to know reason snorted with laughing. Some the mathematical ideas am a lot clearly explained and has appreciated really a quantity partorisca research this has informed a book.

5 / 5 MitchelLike the any one mathematician always interest and has not blocked with which 75 of the rid likes a lot of another populate educational/factual entertainment b9oks

A book is both witty and a lot of enjoyable. It is very written and value the bed. A subject @@@subject is a lot obliging.

5 / 5 MiloThis book is funny - in the calm give you an idea to that it can go it bad when the simple things am lost - and that fright when you discover some consequences of imple' deceptions, loves house of stay and not taking some risks to exitâŠ

5 / 5 GraciePerhaps is my failure , but has been expecting the jaw that moments of falls like that volume when calm has read in a prevalence of a golden proportion for a first time. It writes with heat and humanity this in spite of so much is very easy to read - but sadly a lot of a house of examples in a world of finance, which has have always does to feel likes am trapped inside the hot car.

5 / 5 FatimahExcellent tale of Errors of Mathematicians, some counting again of well known old histories, but many new some, with has detailed explanations.

5 / 5 BenitoHas wanted to Kill conferences in an internet, this in spite of was necessary to try the book also.

Can think the errors of mathematician would mean precise the terracing of Mathematics to comprise them. But in a contrary, the book explains a lot thoroughly. Included the little too thoroughly and repeatedly ask me :)

5 / 5 SheilaCan think the errors of mathematician would mean precise the terracing of Mathematics to comprise them. But in a contrary, the book explains a lot thoroughly. Included the little too thoroughly and repeatedly ask me :)

Intelligent, informative and witty. Utmost examples of because subject of mathematician of, bridges to video games of advertising to some doors of plough of way. It is very accessible and involving and calm to good sure stop and think in a mathematics that mark our world-wide work that takes for has admitted every day... Until it goes bad!

4 / 5 ArdisAmusing histories of mathematics of services of interest. Memory of John Allen Paulos' rids A Mathematical Law some Newspapers

4 / 5 JulienneIn general the readable book. No a thing for serious mathematics but entertaing this in spite of.

5 / 5 KareenA full excellent book of ideas to errors of engineering. It is very written and easy to digest.

5 / 5 DaneThere is wanted absolutely this book, included that has seen several excerpts of Matts video, still found the the value that reads before hand like such. It does not have to that be soyathsy' to comprise or enjoy this book, but am maintaining them some episodes on my sleeve for when the the beginning that it teachs gcse mathematician in September.

A book is not aimed in of the graduates of mathematicians (like some reviewers looks partorisca take outrage in), but is the book of fun episodes in that spends when the mathematics goes bad.

This book was the bit of the left down. Some in fact have based the examples in the mathematicians could have done the piece of good magazine, but instead have the book typeset in the big source and cushioned was the on 300 pages. There are some interesting examples of 'fences and questions of estacas, the binary numbers that wraps round to start with again in 0 in of the computers, held of random numbers, and errors of units and combining different levels of precision. Ossia The majority of a mathematics. To do a book an interesting plus and more along, an author then has to that take loaned of the the others discipline likes them to them the creation of product, management and science of human factors. A mechanic that confuses two measures of rays in an aircraft, and some failures of processes that has left this to never spend, is not really soyaths', and neither is bad in that drawn those doors of fire in those builds that opened for interior and to enclosed jam in running over it. The mathematician can be one 'queen of all the sciences' but concealed does not mean it can appropriate other disciplines to try and he more interesting, without giving any credit. In place of this book, spent 'A Creation of Daily Things' for Donald Norman - is very better. Two stars because ossia roughly 2/5 of the book of examples of interesting mathematician, and 3/5 to cushion appropriated other disciplines, reasons apparently does not have quite mathematical interesting to do the whole book. Ossia The shame , like the idea of a book appealed, which was reason I bought it.

5 / 5 GwynReally that interests to reserve which covers several questions of ways have been caused for errors of mathematicians. A book is written in the lighthearted way and a lot enjoyable still if any one the any knowledge of particular mathematician (although like the mathematician also would have enjoyed some questions to solve!).

What negative only to say is that it was like this engrossed read that all really quickly and would like me some more please.

In general, those interest and amusingly writing. Like the user of time with a longitude of spreadsheets, this in spite of, has found a chapter in Excel that worries . He the years have read to somewhere that roughly 50 of all spreadsheets contain errors. According to researching quoted in Humble Pi a figure a lot this more afterwards to 90. It does not doubt a figure but thought it probably so only applied to a spreadsheets that have built. It is scaring to think that it also applies to do really serious.

4 / 5 DahliaThis glorious book would have to that be read by EACH ENGINEER or Planner or Writer of Specification or Any the one who has Any entrance anything to a delivery/of manufacture/of the drawing/of specification accuses. It is eminently readable and the comparisons the personal daily life is has done easily. It is scaring that easily few things can be stray, and can then loss of cause of life. It informs to the number of specifics in a doctor, automotive and aerospace fields, this in spite of some points is doing applies to almost all the world-wide everywhere. If that can have given 7 or 8 stars would have. READ L! Please?

Is hard in of the places... Still I have any idea the one who transitive the data in fact could be, as if you are taste would recommend to go dulcemente, but in of general very good. It helps that you needn't âtakeâ each part entirely to move on... More still it was stuck to the some around understood place the 3.

A title can be the little controversial. A lot some âerrors of mathematicianâ have mentioned has caused the significant number of deaths, like âthe comedyâ is the poor election of words. Yes, I know it means in his original sense, but still. It recommends.

There is wanted absolutely this book, has included that has seen several excerpts of Matts video, still found the the value that reads before hand like such.

5 / 5 BrainThe one who an informative and enjoyable has read! I add, it has thought to cause, real-world-wide examples of the mathematics gone bad. For those of us required to rid claims of costs or returns of tax, a 'Randomly wrong' the only good section a prize of a book.

4 / 5 CyndiContains to plot of interesting histories. I have known enough to plot of them of a kill canal of Youtube. Also you are engineer of software , could find some 'has gone by some' histories for calm. It recommends it conceal by all the world like this book of weekend.

It does not think blinked until roughly page 37! Partorisca me This was a engrossing has read. Calm aim you something of a characteristic of careful thought thinks of mathematicians, whilst simultaneously aiming you a lot of interesting results of geometry. One of some more such books have read.

5 / 5 CoralThis book is a better; I love it: it buys it and read the. A writer is not so only the mathematician adds but also the professor adds, is some class of soyathematical Feynman' or to the professor adds like Feynman in Mathematicians. His writing and explaining is clear, short, very easy to comprise and just wonderful. This book is the present of a scholarly scientist.

Gentleman Acheson, am very happy partorisca yours wonderful reservation and very appreciated yours.

5 / 5 RolandoGentleman Acheson, am very happy partorisca yours wonderful reservation and very appreciated yours.

That refreshing partorisca see designates geometry again. Acheson Has written the book that each one GCSE the candidate would owe that read. Some episodes and witty the drawings are the delight .

The examples of some questions have directed is : as it can tangents in the help partorisca exit a speed of the buller; reason is a corner in the semicircle always the right corner? Reason is a Pythagoras always true.

Ossia For real the book of if it marvels partorisca comprise 32 chapters, notes, and reading further. The subjects comprise: parallel lines, corners, triangles, circles, zone, irrational numbers and pi.

That is like this unusual is that Acheson give you some come from as well as exceptions .

A sheer delight so that mathematical of amour.

If you have not wanted never the paradox, this book resupplies in the remarkable way. Geometry, With his pyramid to grind of -for-tests of has not been my less appearance preferred of mathematicians in of the pupils - I has very preferred some appearances that solves puzzle of algebra, for example. David Acheson has failed to convince me that it was really would be necessary has has wanted... This in spite of, ossia for far one the majority of the accessible book in the geometry there is not reading never, and wish it had been around my day.

Is the textbook a way the textbook would owe that be. There is context, of bunks of the elderly Egyptian rope to that has given a parallel postulate the a lot of doing on (that comprises a rarity of Lewis Carroll). One of some worse things in a way have been geometry has taught is that it has not had any consideration of applications, so only these wretched theorems. Here, the abundance of a geometry is presented by means of the potential application. There have it also some historical fund well, that comprises the seen rule on Euclid of different points in history. Acheson Has achieved something sincerely brilliant.

An only reason can not take more excited roughly is concealed is still, secretly of this good-looking faĂ§ade, the textbook. Still it spends far too a lot the time that says me roughly some details of, says, a midpoint theorem that really does not concern me roughly. Although a lot of appearances of him could return inside mathematician populate, this is not the book of mathematician populate. This in spite of, I need learns a basics of geometry for any reason ( has to that have several reasons, surely) then this blows each known textbook in a subject out of a water. Calm can not take all a detail of all some theorems, but that it is far more than the entity is that you take one comprising that it is going in.

A Book of Marvel of Geometry that he wonderfully. Acheson Has done the remarkable work. But they are fearful geometry still has not been for me. I have not been converted to be the defender of a @@@subject - but are of a book.

5 / 5 MichellDecisively a good-looking introduction that the difference has given a lot others go adentra deeply in the field of the geometry without annoiare; in fact it saws street that gave it law augment the curiosity of the reader interested. Remarkable The difference has given other divulgatori that attain The turn the interests so only dope pocket pages

5 / 5 AsaSome chapters in this book are short. I owe that reread a lot of parts of a book to fully the comprise, but ossia so only reason I geometry has learnt never in institute. I have enjoyed to learn some practical applications of geometry. I will try to teach geometry with other books.. Some the majority of mine the lovely subjects are corners and zone .

The corners are lovely to learn reason can help to enjoy feed and art. I have learnt that I can use geometry to equally cut to pizza for my friends. So only I owe that learn like this to cut the slide of pizza to the 45 corner of terracing. It likes to go to museums to see produced. Also I like him to him the look in good-looking scenic views of character like a Glorious Canyon and NiĂĄgara Fall. I am motivated to learn like this to situate mine wheelchair to take a wider view better of these good-looking views. Acheson Marks the reference on like this to fulfil this to draw the horizontal line and the circle in level of eye, but a process is complicated more for me because I am seating.

Learning roughly the zone is the lovely reason plans to substitute a carpet in my house in the near future. Also I want to install carpet to several parts in the new paving or marries my years of mine late plus. I have learnt of an example in this book that can cover earth with carpet in several points and the maintain the curve in another point. This example helps to comprise to situate hides so only in of the zones where walk and exercise. Appearance use my geometrical knowledge to describe to draw the bath that is quite big and sure for mine wheelchair. I strive to learn more roughly geometry and apply my life.

This in spite of so only 3/4 is cost reading. A last neighbourhood of a book has not been adds. It was to quote ready to finalise this book when it do. They are this in spite of steps the time of plot googling all a real life the chances have mentioned.

Formed: Hardcover was quite misled for a description of product: has thinks that that this was the 'to the equal that to do mathematical' book; but it is not - it is the history of mathematics. But, this in spite of, this was my failure and this is looking for to be very interesting in fact. I seat that it is like this as well as it can be in his subject for the young audience. Some authors have kept well behind to a ancients and cover all the ideas that import well until a moderns. All this is to do with an usual upper quality DK illustrations and, as with everything of his his books new plus, abundance of information, doing for the a lot informative book and appeal in fact.

It runs - no spent unless you have taken loaned the copy or seen he in the tent of book and calm believed in fact to that likes. To Any bear to give like of the present in any one!!!

(So only it can mention that my edges there is Asperger is, like the mathematician is one of his things!)

A book is chronological, in that begins half ages and a mathematics and mathematics then, all a way to now. It is class of the history of mathematics, and some people those who has has discovered things, but also explains some concepts with illustrations. For example, has all listened of a history of a man the one who tricked a sultan to give the grain of rice for a first place of the joint of failures, bending he for a next place and spending on until an end of a joint of failures, and in a book in fact has the picture of a joint of failures with a number of grains of rices in the each place.

Formed: Hardcover is surprising mathematical that interesting is, once already calms does not have to that do examinations of institute. Ossia The lovely book of DK - is basically the history of mathematics. As you would expect of DK, is drawn fantastically and illustrated - and in spite of being in mathematicians, is very accessible and easy to comprise, included partorisca to to any one him me like the one who has not studied mathematician in of the decades. For real it is the fascinating the book and I have learnt a terrible plot already and are so only the few chapters in. Included some appearances of mathematicians (likes probability) that I absolutely hated in colegiala is resulted the source of interest more than abhorring. The mathematics for real is the beautiful subject - and is the shame generally does not take partorisca discover that in colegiala.

5 / 5 GiovannaFormed: Hardcover Fantastically dips was, this whistlestop recognition of mathematical history directs partorisca do the accessible complex ideas without dumbing down a fashion partorisca write. They are the student of leading arts and has felt always daunted for mathematicians, but finds this reserves really fascinating and now can comprise why some habladura of people in a beauty of numbers. Ossia The book concealed me interested in something has not had any interest in, which is a More the add compliment can give.

A book is suitable partorisca adults and of the adolescents with an interest in a subject.

Formed: Hardcover He has any of a DK books in this row or explore in any of them in the tent partorisca reserve then will know a format and that type of information will be in this book. It is not the book that teaches calm roughly mathematician for , is more interesting while, details some people, social and political history and evolvement of mathematics. A creation is well with this different painted and sized expensive of type and covers the big spectre in an accessible way. An a lot of very random read.

So only I love this series. Has quite everything of them excepts sherlock Holmes. It is so only to have this class of books that simply explain material in measure of bite chunks.

The calculation roughly is that it quantifies a tax of transmission. It is based on two fundamental ideas: derived and integrals. A prime minister examines imposed to change while some models last an accumulation of transmission. East enables, for example, to calculate a distance the vehicle has travelled when so only his speed is known. An idea of the function is fundamental to calculate. For example, a distance fallen for the organism is the function of time, and a place of the number is the function of a number. A sines and cosines of the corners are functions of some corners.

I have done the pocolos ran of calculation on some years, and the desire would read this first book, has dipped everything to context, and he all bit it more understandable.

A word to warn for Kindle user be careful that the source has chosen, otherwise some of some mathematical symbols can disappear! I have found empty space where 1/3 and pi (the symbol) would have to that it has been, until I experimented with some sources, and has on burst.

Like the plot of people, is resulted consciously conscious of Alan Turing of a film a game of imitation and data the reasonable interest in history and social history, particularly the normal people that do extraordinary things, has thinks that would give this the gone. This book is researched superbly and superbly writing. Hodges Is able to write detail in (the most run) an accessible way, and has found of the half this book fascinating. I particularly really enjoyed learning roughly Turing a person, if it conceal partorisca be in colegiala, house, Cambridge, Bletchley, Princeton and his personality and aims. I have had also some interest in his contributo adds partorisca compute like this now the knowledge and his work. So much, reason so only 3 stars? This book is full of some very heavy detail and in the middle of this taken up with the mathematician detailed, and when it has said them detail the pages and bad pages.

I count it it detailed well of Turing. One could be the little postponed for some of some technical explanations that I expsito hard to take. This in spite of, partorisca be the true account of his life and work, such is unavoidable or could buy the account the short more than any justice to a subject. They are half way by means of and enjoying some histories of war and accounts of character roughly that has known slightly.

3 / 5 GrettaWhen Has of this book there has been on 700 pages my heart sank . Look, Wants to learn some essential facts on some thoughts, chances of influential life, and attainments of Alan Turing. I do not love the catalogue of facts in his ancestor that quotes behind 500 years. This book has required heavy modifying. Congratulations to an author to do an investigation. If ossia that has wanted to present, the monograph of investigation on Alan Turing, has to has been an academic publication . This in spite of, like the popular account of his life are fearful has irrelevant detail that I quite frankly does not want to know. Like this now I am looking for the book the short plus that takes to a point a fast plus.

5 / 5 DejaA brilliant book, fantastically written with meticulous and exhaustive investigation. It presents the portrait of Turing very different of some autistics-characters-stereotype of the scientist offered for a film A Game of Imitation, which alleges partorisca be based in this book. Enough like this base has done are not sure like the film aims the Turing the one who does not know the one who the joke is and looks unable to take a function of humour at all, while this book is full of chance of his humour, often engagingly bobo. He also the one who any film could be expected to do, which is present his ideas in detail (also detail for some, apparently.) A book gives readers he casualidad to take the boss in an extraordinarily intense and original intelligence that has not touched so only the critical function in Big Bretagna wartime history but achieved to some future possibilities of mathematics in of the very odd ways - for example exiting formulae to develop some models that favour to a markings of animal like some zebras.

5 / 5 LadyOssia So much the biography of Alan Turing and an alternative history of WW2 and bosses so many brilliantly.

It is the year has read of of the east. A subject (mine) is fascinating. I do not think to have think that that Turing was a enigma after reading this book. He so only looked partorisca be highly intelligent. His musings in the biology and the religion suggest the very deep alcohol. If you have read a book will find a film (A Game of Imitation) absolutely unconvincing, like this totally ignores an enormous intellectual activity that goes in in Bletchley Parco. Turing Ă famous partorisca another mathematical work besides one that breaks code, and a book extracted concealed.

Has taken an impression that a writer had packed in all can find roughly Turing, and has found sometimes facts or of the activities that the importance has not gone properly explained, or to the equal that looked partorisca assume leading knowledge that had not been given. Some of some mathematical ideas would have to that it has been accompanied by the Dummies Drive!

Is the good bed -- extremely very researched and writing very good and love a detail of a mathematics and the science and his career is partorisca be recommended. This in spite of, is the book along - some 600 pages - and the taste is looking for more than detail in a man and his character (how was, in that looked that a film) does not go you partorisca give the idea adds (perhaps reason there have it like this little the available information in his private thoughts). Especially it has it has wanted the know if it was true that it was intellectually emaciated for a chemical (oestrogen) castration - as a film suggested - but has not felt never has discovered of deeply be affected.

In general, certainly lovely reading, and is permissible to skip some of some synchronises some technical plus.

4 / 5 BrandonIn general, certainly lovely reading, and is permissible to skip some of some synchronises some technical plus.

Fascinating Has read. Comprehensible also. Yes, a mathematician is dodgy partorisca read, but one there is detailed highly reasons behind Turing visionas is incredible. I never @@give enough that of one solving of enigma the saga was down to Turing so only and was also naive when it avenges to comprise his enormous, so only, contributo the computing. A book, sadly, underlines an usual British reluctance to embrace or envision future projects. It covers Turing clumsiness that surrounds his sexuality in a encouragingly sensitive way. This is not one the easy plus bed, but well the value that dips the bit of extra endeavour in to complete a book. A lot satisfying and reserve which really dips Turing in a pedestal he like this merit. A lot, book a lot very in fact.

5 / 5 KaliOssia An extremely detailed biography and complete of the life of Turing of before cradle the tomb. He no shirk tentativas to explain his pure and mathematical work has applied, and his contributi to cryptology. Neither his homo sexuality. Like the person with scientific formation, has found some of some tentativas to explain some details of his work that confuses and a very poor reproduction of some diagrams, graphs, and the tables have not helped. So only the small modifying of these would have augmented comprising considerably - had been expanded to return the page and darkened, he at least readable state.

Ossia The book for the specialist the one who needs to know a minutia of the life of Turing. One of some other biographies would be better for a general of intelligent reader

4 / 5 TeganOssia The book for the specialist the one who needs to know a minutia of the life of Turing. One of some other biographies would be better for a general of intelligent reader

An extremely good book, so roughly Turing he, and in a politics and social climate of a time. It is surprising to think that all this past so only done 50 years. Do bears in alcohols, this in spite of, that this book is written in a mathematician advanced, for an academic mathematician, like the good part of a book is very technical. You can neither it glosses in these pages, or wade by means of dense passages of mathematical logic. It takes the concentration adds, but repays an endeavour with the picture of any out of tune with his time, and with the ready society to take all and give at all. A book has shouted questions in a course one state touched in a final tragedy, and the one who leaves some state games now in everything of our lives, in the fewer obvious ways has felt to finalise this book, which, for me, is a sign of the good book.

4 / 5 DonaOssia The riveting and same biography for those of knots those who are not mathematical, is enthralliing. There is extracted adds of mathematical detail in him but this does not deter a reader any mathematician in any way at all. I recommend all the world-wide the one who has seen a film 'A Game of Imitation' to read this to take to know and comprise Alan Turing as really you are. A film contains a lot little of a true history and attainments and there is the note in a small impression of some credits that says that some characters have been fictionalised. Many a history is also state and am sad that is in 2015 Oscar nominations.

Mina some critiques of a book is a coverage. I think that that it is very sad that a film has been given such prominence and has the picture of Benedict Cumberbatch on he in place of one of Alan Turing.

One of some better biographies has read. It resupplies much more depth that a film and real idea to an importance of the work of Turing and his function in establishing an intelligence has based pecial report' with some the EUA. While not skating in the sexuality of Turing, this biography any glielo gets obsessed with to him to him excessively. Perhaps one the majority of the interesting appearance of a book is a question mark has shouted on Turing is esuicide'. A chance to convince is fact that, quotes some secrets Turing have known and his erratic behaviour, is increasingly be 'inconvenient' to some services of security in both sides of any Atlantic.

A fascinating read, and if yours wins has been whetted for A Game of Imitation, can not help but find this fascinating.

4 / 5 FelipaA fascinating read, and if yours wins has been whetted for A Game of Imitation, can not help but find this fascinating.

Has taken a book after reading the trailer for A Game of Imitation, a film has based to a book. That the splendid pair is.

His work is said to have shortened one 1939-45 war for two years.

Description of good balance of a life of the man the one who has done the enormous difference to a second world-wide war. It can have had any the one who could have fill his function but probably any one a right time. Well written for the thorough author, laborious.

5 / 5 JaimieAn a lot of entertaining film, although when being both fact and fiction, without active read at length in a @@@subject one would take the totally wrong impression as to an endeavour of real crew that sustains a Bletchly operation of Park like pointed or in fact very signalled in a film. It has been too glossed on partorisca a sake of work and a real pause by means of has not been a Eureka the pointed moment in a film. A tragic side of the life of Alan Turing has been managed a lot well, the one who the waste of the alcohol that shines - as the society has changed is attitudes .

The book adds in the man adds the one who has been treated like this bad for a British establishment. Shame in that has forgotten a number adds bolt Alan Turing has saved, so only the loss his own because of shear prejudice, TEARS Alan and thank you.

5 / 5 DoreathaAfter looking a film is is remained daunted of the brilliance of this man and his estaca of deplorable treatment-war. I think that that it was one of some better films have not seen never in fact and afterwards has bought immediately this book and another of this website. This was the add read, exceptionally writing and the real extracted to take stuck to so much is certainly the heavy weight! The stop that reads this description and buy this book!

5 / 5 AmieeWonderfully Spills the light detailed to a life of Alan Turing. Each little detail that was at length has researched has given the lovely idea to the remarkable man. This in spite of, to the sure point, I so only skipped by means of the majority of some technical passages. I think that that the biographies are like this on some authors to the equal that are some people is roughly. It seats like an author has looked for to impose his level typical of knowledge on some subjects that is to be do on, which a book to good sure could have done without.

4 / 5 WaldoExcellent. Brilliantly and sympathetically writes 'so only likes says in a box; A lot of ideas to a government of a yesterday [and today is ]. Some humour also. I will not feign to comprise all a mathematic and technical subjects, are not the scientist or included academic but can a lot of skip these parts because included it is often staggering two liners that the mark feels up and really think a lot deeply in an all some subjects.

4 / 5 NoraAn open look in the man the one who was before his time

covers political, audience and national security but open it brota on friendship, reports and the opinion of a world of law and state been due to was state of dates.

Have question with confidence, for this one hiding and loss of his fortune, hid under the public earth gone for ever. But still a question, with that has fixed to do for advance of weeks and earths on deaths????????

Is this one of a untried admitted of investigation that has been clues of data in this book or so only could be order. The sensitive information resisted in the brain of people is so only withheld for election and of the stays out of a public domain, Whats a response ........ Sympathetic And confidence that the person always will do a right thing.

Are so only in the 1/4 way by means of a book. The interior a moment are the bit 'bogged down' with a mathematics a lot duquel comprise. I have expected a book to be more in a soyun' more than the estoallita humid for account unexpectedly that do. Hopefully Improve.

5 / 5 ElizIs boring. I have prendido to read with which few pages. Really no respecto roughly all this class of useless details roughly the life of Turing.

4 / 5 ClaytonAre at present the student to Compute and would suggest to read east! It goes to enough the bit of depth and some of a terminology can be defiant but in general, the very interesting and that the must has read.

4 / 5 LeeannaA lot well, and very interesting regarding a development on some years, with an entrance of some diverse sources. This in spite of, found it too detailed, especially as I am not mathematical, found last it to take interested and comprise some changes subtiles in a development of some sequences in an earlier section of a book. It can be recommended reading for the person interested in the work of Alan Turing in a development of a computer.

5 / 5 MargorieThis was my second reading of Andrew Hodges the excellent book that describes a character and work of an undoubted character, Alan Turing. Like the layman, has found the majority of a material a technical plus reasonably easy to comprise and digest, and a way in that an author situates some chances in the historical context helps some comprising of some complexities - both personal and technical - of the life of Turing and fine tragic. A biography for real adds of the man I for real adds. Highly recommended.

Am not sure is subject @@@subject or the fashion of an author but this is not one involving read. I have persisted to a very well but can do not saying has cost an endeavour.

5 / 5 ChantayHas looked an evening of Saturday of game of imitation , there is enjoyed a film that a lot has wanted to them read a book also, ordered it late seated and has been rid Tomorrow of Monday the brilliant service arrived in perfect condition, the Enormous book began it and already finding it difficult of the place down. Alan Turing like a increadible Man.

4 / 5 RandalStill so only 65 by means of this long book. Although it is in fact well it writes it is also very detailed. It can try be difficult to comprise if ossia yours a lot before introduction to an origin of computer and potentially HAVE. Perhaps try some to the first background reading likes him Turing of George Dyson Catherdral to resupply more than first context to undertake this volume.

5 / 5 LavonneThere is enough the plot of discussions in some mathematicians that achieves and some use of methods to document processes. Some of those are weighed in the disposal but calm would not lose any one a lot for skipping him. I am fascinating has had program of analysis and formal formation of systems.

4 / 5 TommieThe product adds, fast nave, excellent service! Thank you

4 / 5 ArnettaA fantastic book! This in spite of, be warned that there is roughly heavy mathematician. Not trying swipe my own trumpet but for way of context, has taken One is in mathematician and mathematician further in a-Level (albeit the fact for the moment) and so only took it roughly everything. This in spite of, think it that it was a lot of value the bed included of your eyes glaze on in of the sure parts. For me, a mathematician is necessary to give idea the Turing he. I think that that it is a biography has better bed.

5 / 5 KyungThe book adds but the little weighed to read. Quite difficult to take a concept of the work of Turing but in spite of that, an entertaining read roughly of some alcohols more never is. A film, which is based in this book, takes some liberties when it comes the historical accuracy but like an introduction to a history of Alan Turing and a Enigma diagrams, finds it really watchable.

5 / 5 CaroleeTOO TECHNICAL And no DOOR WAS the CHARACTER of TURING Or The SCALE OF HIS HIT. Very INTERESTING To MATHEMATICIANS BUT A lot AT LEAST SCHOLARLY. COMPARED WITH The FILM (GAME of IMITATION ) REALLY FAILS to HELP USA COMPRISE TURING, which Is The POINT Of A BIOGRAPHY

4 / 5 TriciaGood book for mathematicians buffs and historical. Enormous detail. A bit weighed in disposal in time.

5 / 5 TressieExcellent book, a lot of idea to an alcohol and qualified of an extraordinary man. I have bought he out of interest and like an antidote to a ghastly film which has to that way that be amply rented and which purportedly inspired by this book. It thanks advantage a book has a coverage for real, woefully that loses of a film.

One of one a lot little real hero of WW II, but the one who has been condemned partorisca commit suicide because of backward seen in sexual behaviour in that then. You are the actor of entity to save Big Bretagna of collapse and invasion, as well as the founder to compute of modern age.

4 / 5 AlyceAn excellent book and very very read. Read jointly with some other books roughly the and a enigma schemes this is exited recently gives the real idea to a man and his remarkable brain and some developments that is arisen of working in a enigma project.

5 / 5 StefaniePromptly Has received, perfect condition. I read it reason have finalised to see a film, and found a mathematics the little intimidating, a film has the plot more humanity; in all the chance, the man whose private life has done the soul has tortured. It achieves things of sound in WW2, before it kills , and thoroughly has deserved his pardon. Interesting sticking with.

4 / 5 NadiaVery detailed. I add bedtime reading - three pages and you am slept... Gentleman Hodges has felt obviously obliged to use each little bit of information was able to obtain. Prpers Having said that, well an endeavour of reading - a lot of @@subject that the time takes (probably month).

5 / 5 MiriamA book is very written and gives the very good idea to a personality of the very complex man. But, you are spoilt for me for some long technical explanations of a work done. It seats as if any with less than the PHD in the mathematicians would struggle to comprise big sections of a book and like me appeal to skip reading. Perhaps it can be be treat better for the series of longitude footnotes in an end of the each chapter to the equal that would have given a reader an option of just concentrating in a narrative

Ossia The a lot brief text , but ossia the good thing . At the beginning it looked the little has bitten expensive, but a text resupplies clear explanations. I am not sure it would give this to any the one who there has been has not founding never a @@@subject before this in spite of. An alternative, the full school or book of text of university calculation, would be much more expensive and no such the like partorisca read.

So only an example I discovered does not look partorisca do felt - perhaps the detail has been ignored? Ossia A one in that of the rests of sphere have resisted the cylinder by means of him.

Thinks that ossia the wonderful book like this far. It is like this clear and some examples are like this well chooses and interesting. Had the error of odd press in my copy where the faint imprint of the figure of leading page has aimed, but is so only the few pages. It would be he adds partorisca students before. A level or in any age(I am taking plot of him and are ...).

5 / 5 TwandaSome really interesting sections to a second meso but has found a half prime minister the little too slow. I know it was necessary to explain a concept of the calculation but I have expected more than a history and the house in that contributed to his development.

4 / 5 OlaHas chosen this up in the whim partorisca something partorisca read in a train, and am like this happy has done. Like the programmer the one who to a large extent has neglected mathematician of pupil, has looked for something partorisca take me behind to a subject. I find it much easier to learn with a historical context of some ideas, and felt a book there has been so only a right balance of technical and narrative content. It is the whirlwind visits by means of a fundamentals of the calculation and I found it all a lot accessible. I have obtained the a lot of idea more orders to a programming of game has done using Unit (where Euler corners and the vector transforms is common things) and and he really inspired me partorisca involve some ideas have presented in of the future projects.

4 / 5 AmadoBrilliant idea and like this easy to follow different a lot of some traditional texts in a @@@subject

has bought this partorisca my grandson and he have loved that. I have loved mathematical when it was in the pupil and this book was unusual his current collection.

5 / 5 MerilynShining little book! Amur He like this! Highly recommended for all the students, and professors, of calculation. Big also for creation very good.

5 / 5 CherlyAccording to a @@@back cover 'This little book is more ambitious that looks.' It averts of the diverse feeling of damning with faint praise, has an element for real is, which come from both negative and the positive, as that is looking for of the book on calculation.

To the left is to take a negative out of a first way. To do it the mathematical adventure, likes subtitle suggest, would require quite more history and quite less calculation. Although David Acheson takes some history of mathematics in, ossia much more 'taking your boss around calculation for beginners' that is 'the history of calculation.' Then , yes, you will discover, for chance, a battle among Newton and Leibniz - and Berkeley of Bishop is titled superbly 'the Analyst, or tongue headed to a infidel mathematical' - but so only in the few lines of no.

That takes instead is the step to any introduction to calculation of first principles, which builds in Elderly Greek concepts by means of the limits and far more. To the long of some readers of way will discover reasons there is such the report among calculation and serious infinite and the one who pi and and coming to a mix. In the same take the something of the calculation that use imaginary numbers.

There there is frankly far too grunt work here partorisca east to really qualify mathematician like this populate. But, equally, this little hardback the lack of one dulls to write way and has has done examples of the textbook. It is far too readable to be one of those.

Would say does in of the general terms two types of people those who can find this book that interest. If you have done some calculation but so only crunch some numbers according to some principles without thinking roughly because work, a book will be extremely enlightening. And has the general interest in mathematicians but a lot really comprise those that components apparently any one has joined to come near, would have to go down a lot amiably. But it does not expect this adventure has promised. This reserves the far too practically imported for that.

An excellent book that gives a reader an outline of a development of calculation and his relevance to a world-wide around . The chapters are short, with simple explanations, as any with relatively of small mathematical knowledge but the disposal to concentrate the little, and sometimes reread, would have to be able to comprise the majority of that is has said. A fashion is attractive.

David Acheson felizmente takes a reader to some quite anticipated mathematician. In some final chapters, if you are the no-mathematical or no-physical will have to that take the sure quantity on confidence, but calm still would owe that be able to follow a gist that is has said.

Like an introduction to dip readers to calculation and because imports, this book is excellent. A historical approximation (and a history is interesting in his own right) helps in an edifice-on sympathetic. For more than the readers is likely to be the book to read dulcemente, perhaps one or two chapters the day, which is like me read it.

Some chapters are a lot brief which is a lot when the basic concepts are contested but when it comes to explain ideas more difficult (later on in a book) this concise fashion is not adapted to resupply a depth has required to give a reader the a lot of comprising of a material. These results in the reading to frustrate experience unless you are happy to accept the one who an author is saying without a lot of explanation.

5 / 5 Theodora'A History of Calculated for David Acheson presents the dread of mathematical core in the most readable fashion with fantastically simple diagrams and small paragraphs.

To Some to the centrical ideas like to them the limit, infinity, a infinitesimally small, and the convergence is illustrated with striking examples.

Has in rodeo still lucidas discussions in some applications of a daily experience to an esoteric quantum mechanics.

Has been by means of enough the few books for the beginner ( or the late in life refresher) run, and ossia undoubtedly one has read more. It covers all a material of entity in the breezy way, not abusing never your inteligence, and can finalise he the alone day. Ossia Rids it scarce , PERFECTO.

Highly recommended to all the world.

4 / 5 DorineHighly recommended to all the world.

The book is a lot well to good sure but the question is is touching on priced

5 / 5 DierdreOne a lot of enjoyable, stimulating piece. It could have been the same good present partorisca (youngster) boys of institute if some processes of calculation were the pocolos more detailed. Yes, I see such boys are not an audience of aim of this book, but I just desire there would be material introductory stimulating of this class partorisca prompt students.

5 / 5 JustaExtracted- of a good book, but partorisca to people likes me to them has had, that has studied the decades of subject behind and used or book partorisca relembrar some things. It does not indicate partorisca has not initiated, reason do not go comprises at all. In author or Diverse demonstrations pules phases, or that sometimes has spent a correct difficulty has joined take me...

Has think that a book there would be more history of a calculation and fewer equations. So only a lot that has expected. It is the quite short book like material an author (the one who really looks to know his material) could have elaborated bit it more in the each section.

5 / 5 NoelleThis book was easy to read and comprise - calm does not have to that have the terracing in Mathematics to follow an explanation of Calculation. Some examples help a sense of mark of the reader of a basics of Calculation. It comprises some of a history of a development of Calculation.

5 / 5 JinThis excellent book took behind to an austere beauty of a calculation and physical that has known well in university. A familiarity of a subject has not been the spoiler.

4 / 5 CorieAdds narration . The difficult concepts have explained in the lucida way. Of limits the partial differential equations, an author felizmente takes a reader with him.

His lovely reading for all the one who love an introduction to calculation like this basic and advanved

5 / 5 AlejandraA book to conserve to the sud his Table of Chevet with the end to read or of in relire day of the pair of page has joined, until ĂȘtte sure of all conserve in memory !

A small selection very appreciated to take in Main, joins three good-looking edition to the sud that feigns paper, that offers lucido like of the touch and of the alcohol.

A book of better calculation. The show of this book is that like the calculation can be written in simple to use tongue.

4 / 5 JackiA book explores calculation of one a lot beginning to his use now. Has little deep but in of the general terms covers each @@subject sufficiently.

Surprising partorisca take to some roots , wishes all a mathematics of institute the professors read this book . It will transform like this we think in a world of mathematicians around . SĂșper Inspiring partorisca read !!!

5 / 5 RayeAn ideal book partorisca this fresher and the shower of street to has has experienced professors.

4 / 5 TrishaA book is the good introduction to Calculation. Taking has complicated little continues in. It is directly to Calculation without squandering long on history and other histories

Rating: 4 out of

If or it will not enjoy you this book depends on the one who are. If you enjoy to read books in popular science, and that tries to solve an occasional mathematical puzzle or logical simple, then is ready partorisca east a. If you want to comprise a theory in any depth, or use it partorisca solve questions, calm then will require at least first-year undergraduate statistician partorisca begin, much more partorisca do progress - and the book with a formal mathematics, but begin with east an in the first place partorisca take the perspective in a field before going to detail.

Is not obvious to the equal that would owe that given of use partorisca decide it partorisca believe or like partorisca do, and, like the theories of statistics have been developed, the statisticians have tried several different ways to think in data and some conclusions that reasonably could be drawn they. Unfortunately some distribution of opinion (perhaps to a large extent because of some personalities of some main thinkers) is resulted in acrimonious and inconclusive querellas.

Thomas Bayes was the clergyman the one who has died in 1761, leaving behind some mathematical papers. One of these were revised and corrected for Richard estimativa, as we do not know quite the one who Bayes has written or that has meant. This paper was an origin of two things: (1) an amply-used and uncontroversial 'Bayes Theorem', and (2) one controversial idea that the probability could be expressed in of the terms of the measure of faith. In Bayesian statistician a researcher dips the on hire purchase numerical faith and refines this faith in a light of data remarked later. A esubjective' the appearance of a theory has spent he the disrepute, where has persisted takes almost 200 years. A lot of people have faced with the practical questions have found that the Bayesian methods have done, but any one has known no in Bayes or has preferred any to invite critic to mention his name.

In some last 60 years or has had like this the big renaissance in interest in Bayes theory, and has had the habit to solve a lot of questions that has not been docile to traditional methods. A big barrier was that some of some methods have required enormous calculations, but with an availability of economic computers , fast and new methods of calculation that the barrier has there is almost losing.

Sharon Bertsch Mcgrayne the book gives the very clear and thorough history of 'the theory that would not die .' As the statistician to practise for more than 40 years have known a lot a work has published that has written on, and can vouch for his accuracy ( has the few corrections in his web of place), but until I have read this book has not had the clear idea of everything of some historical and controversial developments. My only critique is that a bibliography is organised for chapters, more than so that a sequence has ordered alphabetically.

A lot In the first place was, am wanted to to see that it has sawed it he-Prize of Richard of the founder of Llangeinor is quotes pertinent credit. (Llangeinor To Country of Galles Of the sud, is near where alive, But Rev the prize has done much more that king-write Rev Bayes note)

And are fascinated for some names of all some statisticians those who had listened roughly, and the little has fulfilled included ( has taught statistician in the midlands University).

But having king-read the more closely, now comprise mine quibbles: All Bayesians is treated like unsung heroine, a some-converted is knaves.

Now ossia the complete travesty! Gary has read Taubes 'A Diet Delusion' and will discover that it analyses poor, and especially pre-the conceptions have meant that Framingham has produced some result 'wrong'. It averts to smoke, any of another subject of factors. One the low the fat obsession is doing the worse subjects. A clear example of bad priors in hablador wrong posteriors?

Has done like this Cornfield and his bayesianism goodness to these dud conclusions? Crown McGrayne, an author could be forgiven for not knowing this, but tip that some works of book -- run with any esuccess' still bayesianism (and ignore some failures?)

His attitude to the mine statistical preferred, Tukey is odd to say a less. It alleges everything orders of secret work both for some soldate and for commercial clients that has used Bayes, has ignored still his simple-the view comments that EDA -- the analysis of exploratory data was the one who subject to the majority of question solvers; this CBA confirmatory the analyses of data was so only an ornamental final flourish, and this was true for both bayesians and frequentists.[Plea of authorship: I have written the book on EDA misleadingly has titled soyastering statistical with your micro-computer' 1986]

Is riveting read merit five stars because there are a lot of books, papers, and web of places in a mathematics of Bayes but ossia one first description really good of a history and the personalities have involved. I think that that it is it adds.

Is interested in a mathematician is perhaps more to look for original papers in an internet. I know enough of a mathematics that are not fallido, and comprise quite a lot of principles to know that an author took him quite well.

Have books whose authors were mine appoints so only before but now is personality . They are also able state to dip things to the useful historical context and see like some chances have described in a book has a flu included now.

Some of his interior spent in fact mine lifetime and adapt me of a intolerant git the one who has presented a course in of the statistics inside my course of terracing of the psychology.

A lot the book writes a lot of - a lot of structured, entertaining and has researched. An useful introduction to Bayes theorem and application.

But is so only the little too much in a history of classical statistics vs pragmatic (Bayes) practicioners. And some of a history is very recent - some disagreements on some different approximations still that goes to a @@@1990s - although now I seat a need to bend controls this schism against other sources.

Quite too little in a mathematics. A basic concept is easy and well quite covered in a ApĂȘndice that gives a bit has has done examples, but there is clearly much more his that this eg MCMC. In some point will want to have the game with WinBUGS.

One first half of a book is strong, but a narrative of a present day is a lot of cursory.

A book is a excellently the history researched of Bayes' Theorem and done the particularly good work to locate his development in some hands of Prizes and Laplace. Calm also take the flavour adds of a cryptographic Second world-wide War of endeavours in general and a history of these personalities are said well.

A studio of chance to estimate a probability of the nuclear accident is fascinating and was one of some stronger parts of a book. It resupplies the idea adds to an application of Bayes' Theorem to practical questions, and a process to break down a question a big plus to his parts of constituent.

This in spite of as the history takes to some modern developments like Kalman filters and Markov methods of canal, the developments are presented in the no quite quickly without a lot of explanation. There is contrasts it marked among a way rushed a Gibbs the copy is mentioned with a thoroughness with it cryptographic the uses have been explained earlier.

In general, the quite a lot of bed like the book of history but data his likely audience perhaps could have of has used it illustrations more numerical.

An excellent book that gives the comprehensible account of an evolution of use of Bayes Theorem.

Four stars been due to lack of mathematical detail to evolve use of a theorem - Still if any feigned like the mathematician treatise some details could be be add in of the apĂȘndices partorisca mathematically biased readers that does not have one in epth knowledge of an use of Bayes Theorem in a past and a present.

A very balanced text in a Bayes theorem. Curiously this reserves any yours to this likes the theorem to marvel that it will solve all some questions of a world, but offer practise it comprising of as and where this surfaced of. I do in a data spaces analytical and constantly see people that yours this like this formula of marvel, that comprises an evolution of a theorem has to that hopefully promote people to comprise his limitations and pre-requisites to apply this properly.

For the history of the mathematical and included worse idea an idea of probability and statistician , could has not dipped down. Calm present you it the mould of the a lot of characters that want you read further - to to that liked Bayes' of the principle and that have thought was a work of a devil.

An idea was discovered repeatedly on 150 years every time a situation was a need to come up with the forecast or response of small or any information and to refine the information like this further is gone in.

Sincerely recommends it the people that loves to have the fund in Bayes' rule that is used for a lot of scientists and the business people and wants to know where has come from/come from and how has been used and reason some people still crease the front for the use.

Obviously for statistician geeks but, a lot readable and sustained by excellent histories throughout. Any scary at all, included partorisca numerophobes!

A very interesting history of Bayes theory. It has been expecting the mathematical plus more than the historical approximation and another have mentioned this like a apĂȘndice has been added with a mathematics.

This in spite of still although it has not been that there is wanted, found that a lot of enjoyable and could has not dipped down to the equal that wrote a lot well , and has maintained has interested.

5 / 5 VioletThis in spite of still although it has not been that there is wanted, found that a lot of enjoyable and could has not dipped down to the equal that wrote a lot well , and has maintained has interested.

A book has described a history of application of Baye principle and to the equal that has helped to solve a lot of questions that could not be solved otherwise. But no really it explains like this it has helped it to solve all these questions that is frustrating. I comprise reason an author does not want to go to mathematical detail but so only an indication that the be be assume and how has been in a claculation would have been well. So much in an end, his like the cast of questions has solved to use Bay'is principle. In another hand, a description of some people involved and some reports among them is very good.

5 / 5 ProvidenciaHas has not had never quite quite use for statistics to justify that they the formal endeavour to learn like this to say the approximation is useful so that question, like this once take besides a curve of bell and regular rodeo, are for the give complete support . This rids any a lot of to advance my knowledge of where could wants to use Bayseian methods. He , this in spite of, reinforce the suspicion of term along that Bayes could be useful, in spite of half-agreed snide commentaries to some contrary.

4 / 5 ZettaThis book is such the good bed! A writer is not so only an expert in a subject, but an expert communicator. Prpers Having born it Bayes I, but no the mathematician or statistician, am wanted to to be able to read a history of a ups and downs of Bayes' principle and his present state and uses with some level of sympathetic and extracted adds of entertainment.

5 / 5 EsmeraldaAn odd equation and an example of his use is given in a second apĂȘndice in an a lot of last page!!This explanation of a theorem contrasted with a oft has mentioned frequentist approximation together with has done the examples would improve a book immeasurably.

4 / 5 Michahas Required this book like background reading for my course of Graduate of the Estaca. He a work! Pound very interesting. Whoops Apocalypse - two more the words have required, looked well some.

4 / 5 CarrollHas to that be in accordance with another reviewers the one who has been disappointed for a lack of mathematics in this book. To take loaned an old cliche, Bayes without a mathematician is Hamlet without a prince. Certainly it is that it interests to read on some argue academic, some logical breakthroughs, some military applications, and like this on; but I want to know AS (for chance) Turing has used Bayes to decode Enigma, any simply That has used Bayes. I ask so only the one who the readers would choose on a book if any already have some comprising that Bayes was roughly; but McGrayne has been concerned in a capacity of his readers to follow the mathematical explanation then all has required to do was relegate one has detailed explanations the apĂȘndices. It deserves credit for a apĂȘndice in mammograms and cancer of heart, which is admirably simple, but second that it can see concealed is an only point in that included an algebraic statement of some looks of theorem familiarised.

Has in the first place found a Bayesian approximation the statistics like the student of postgrado in 1970 (thanks to Tribe 'Rational Descriptions, Decisions and SorteĂł - pities has not taken the control of name of McGrayne) and, likes Saul in a street in Damascus, has experienced something like the religious conversion. Different St Paul, has not suffered never any persecution consistently, but is good to see that that mine looked at the same time the religion of the fringe has has achieved now something that approaches statistical orthodoxy. For this tranquility, thank Lady McGrayne.

Like another reviewer has written, ossia on some people those who has done on /with a theory, without explanation or examples of a theory he into use; a lot of examples of where has been used, but any explanation at all, which is the harm . Another reviewer has said enough a same thing, but has thinks that perhaps still would be interesting or illuminating, but alas no. Unless you want to know the little has bitten roughly everything of some varied people that has been 'Bayesian', would not annoy with east.

4 / 5 ShanHas read this vacacional. It has touched to interest; has the terracing in Mathematics, and always is that it interests to see the different approximation to the question.

But was the fight . There is mathematical very small in a book, and the majority of that I agrees is in querellas among several eschools' of has thought. Difficult to comprise the one who an era of real question; there is a lot the few examples of some differences, and some examples of 'things that read' is not given the mathematician slant.

Quting Too many Equations can be overwhelming, but in this chance, would have helped. A famous equation is mentioned in a last page!

Theorem

4 / 5 EileneTheorem

the desire had had clarity more order in it Baye works of theorem for way of examples more practical. Also, it would like it has seen a mathematical test of a theorem. For a way, a first programmable computer has been built in Penn (the Eniac). A car of United Kingdom has not been programmable, for this no a prime minister for a modern definition of the computer..

4 / 5 RaneeOssia A good book , is not very mathematical, more than the historical overview.

5 / 5 RoslynLikes second the world-wide war has begun a German army has used the very sophisticated encryption car - Enigma- to the equal that has left his military units to has sawed-operate intensely with each another. A number of possible combinations in a Enigma has meant that a code was a lot possibly unbreakable.

Except a human factor - some characters, those who had spent out of extracted rule radioed every night 'the beacons have lit like this orderly', like this once you this level of information resupplies the tone partorisca all a rest.

A code-breakers in Bletchley the parco done with probability that the sure sentences have looked in a code encrypted, and over time was able to break a code. An use of probability, using small quantities of initial data, and doing by means of the iterations is a base of Bayes theorem and has a lot of applications - try Google translates, uses this class of algorithm.

Has a lot partorisca annoy in this book - there is the whole description of some academic disputes go in Bayesian is and 'frequentists' mine to look to be the bit in hyped partorisca enhance an element of conflict. I create Frequentist the statistical is has has promoted tools that was adapted for has controlled experiences that it was the rich and able data to be run again and again. I create dressed of Bayesian analysis when it does not have any a lot of die, but estimativas leading (successful or failures) help to change some probabilities for future suppositions. Besides Bayesian recalculation of the probabilities is a lot the intense computer and of has grown here in to the relevance likes him the power of the computer augmented of one 1950 east.

Has been disappointed to learn that an achieved look for a Scorpian, the nuclear submarine lost in sea in 1968, has not been the fully Bayesian-the investigation assisted - apparently the Bayesian analysis has been treated, but some physicists debris sparked a final finds. This in spite of one looks for one to France of Airbus to Air how is gone down in mid Atlantic the pair in fact years, was. In fact a referenced the papers in this investigation cost to read.

Except a human factor - some characters, those who had spent out of extracted rule radioed every night 'the beacons have lit like this orderly', like this once you this level of information resupplies the tone partorisca all a rest.

A code-breakers in Bletchley the parco done with probability that the sure sentences have looked in a code encrypted, and over time was able to break a code. An use of probability, using small quantities of initial data, and doing by means of the iterations is a base of Bayes theorem and has a lot of applications - try Google translates, uses this class of algorithm.

Has a lot partorisca annoy in this book - there is the whole description of some academic disputes go in Bayesian is and 'frequentists' mine to look to be the bit in hyped partorisca enhance an element of conflict. I create Frequentist the statistical is has has promoted tools that was adapted for has controlled experiences that it was the rich and able data to be run again and again. I create dressed of Bayesian analysis when it does not have any a lot of die, but estimativas leading (successful or failures) help to change some probabilities for future suppositions. Besides Bayesian recalculation of the probabilities is a lot the intense computer and of has grown here in to the relevance likes him the power of the computer augmented of one 1950 east.

Has been disappointed to learn that an achieved look for a Scorpian, the nuclear submarine lost in sea in 1968, has not been the fully Bayesian-the investigation assisted - apparently the Bayesian analysis has been treated, but some physicists debris sparked a final finds. This in spite of one looks for one to France of Airbus to Air how is gone down in mid Atlantic the pair in fact years, was. In fact a referenced the papers in this investigation cost to read.

There looks to be the divergence in seen of this book, but has to that say that they are fully in a camp that considers it an excellent account. A title of a book is 'A theory that would not die ' and I, for one, would expect something with the title likes that to be mainly the history and narrative of a ups and downs of an intellectual model and the narrative of some chances in his life coupled with details of a diverse fight which are gone in around the.

And in this chance thinks that an author there has been sucedido admirably. It presents some salient differences of entities among Bayesian and frequentist statistical approximations, together with a incrementally increasing use of Bayesian analysis and reason has taken technology to do a practicable Bayesian approximation. (This although any the one who is spent of the hours just hand-that calculates a rodeo rule of small chance of hundred a 70s has not been engreĂdo that Any real statistical analysis was possible before computer!)

Has loved the technical introduction, there is abundance of texts, Kruschke is my current preference (I like some dogs!), But to see as and reason some powers of Bayesian revolution to the long of can not think of the better book.

PS Among a prime minister and current editions, an author has added any sincere but still enlightening examples. In spite of only when being the few pages in period, thinks that this was the first addition of class and has improved an already excellent book a lot.

Has read the averages of this book and are still waiting for an explanation of Bayes principle. He an adjective 'pesky' gone with a concept of 'priors'? A book is gossipy and waffly and writing in the breathless the inappropriate fashion for his subject @@@subject.

4 / 5 YahairaOssia An excellent history of a development and application of Bayes' Theorem. Feigned for a general reader with an interest in probability and a history of science, is written clearly with the minimum of mathematicians, and covers an earth efficiently.

Particularly is that it interests so that it develops of a way in that create part of new results of intellectual tongue; in this chance, to give sustain the long period of suspicion and first negligence to be succoured of one excites practitioners more than theorists. McGrayne Offered a lot of sidelights in a clandestina the uses have done of Bayes for some soldate and a community of intelligence, which go some way to explain reason a power of these technicians was like this long receive acknowledgement. Some the powerful personalities of some people have involved to receive long attention: any reader will avert of this book in ignorance of a terracing to those incidents of the institutional history and the personal character condition a half intellectual. Recommended.

A question with this book is that it does not explain never exactly THE ONE WHO Bayes the principle has the habit of risks of estimativa or probabilities.

Maintains to say that Bayes the principle is so only any use once have some data. Well,then, reason any only use a data?

Time and again has said that Bayes the principle is used but never with enough of information to leave to verify his utility.

Has found so only an example where a result of Bayes the principle is given together with enough of data (measures of leading risk) to leave to

compare some two results. Ossia A risk of an involuntary nuclear explosion of the plan that spends the bomb that clash. It gives a result (19 accidents for year) has derived, apparently, of Bayes Principle and to plot of time of computer. It has taken almost a result although it uses the calculator in 2 minutes

of some figures gives for accidents for 100,000 flyinh hours and a number of bombers in an air at the same time.

As I am not engreĂdo that Bayes helps of principle and does not look to be necessary at all.

So that they want to learn like the statisticians think that that this book is essential, although an information rid thus book has a lot little in common with the statistical rule textbooks. It is quite the novel roughly like this people those who defended or has denied a Bayesian approximation.

5 / 5 ReinaldoOssia The averages the book and a half is very a lot of - would cost it 5 stars. You learn in a fascinating people those who has deploys Bayesian inference, particularly a Enigma codebreakers; on some statisticians those who have thought that that it was the waste complete of time; in a quirks of history that has done people like this lens to recognise his value.

All very good. But ossia the book roughly roughly mathematical, and there is mathematical very small! Bayes' The principle takes an equation , but concealed is not in fact Bayesian inference. An author maintains to say that sometimes frequentists and Bayesians take some same results, but any example. And sometimes it results very different, but any example. Bayes Looks for having tried the, but any detail in a test. Some other people look for having tried the, but ditto. The Bayesian calculations are said to be very difficult pre-computers and pre-MCMC, but any example to the equal that can see reason is such the question .

That: the little disappointing - but perhaps resupplies some questions can write the Google after this book has not resupplied some responses.

Of then 2000 it learns them the plot roughly soyodern' Bayesian Theory; but reading this book was a historical recognition in the simple idea - 'the future is something like a past more the bit of objective data' (good, are them by train of the simplify!!!) That putted any in question; included knowing something in a history of Bayes the theorem was the surprise to read on some histories roughly that; agreed me the one who has learnt them in Quantum Theory and a Science suddenly XX CENTURY.

Still with scientists a prejudice is common, specialy with simple ideas. Ideas that read, reason forget that the science is a human activity .

In that has been to interest and engreĂdo in conditional probability and Bayes the theorem am looked forward to partorisca read this after seeing some descriptions that rent his fashion and content. That the disappointment! It is the hotch potch of jumbled assertions mostly more than lacking credibilities enough the little patronising statements of some obvious and some concealed is so only simple injustice. A fashion is rambling and, another that when it reaffirms to exist examples of an use of a Bayes Equation, swimming to further one comprising of his use. There is web of places in Bayes that resupplies better ideas more succinctly and free! Bayes Is of entity without some of an exaggeration expĂłsita here.

Has bought this book because I have been interested to know more in Bayes Principle/of theorem, any roughly that it is but to the equal that is coming to be, his applications, the history etc. has loved a book. Gentleman T the cost wants to learn a mathematics of Bayes theorem.

Was the student of postgrado in of the statistics in Virginia Technology. Roughly 1970. We have known then that prof. I. J. Well sometimes it would inform the conversations he once had with Alan Turing. More is late state has developed that these had taken place in Bletchley Parco, an upper secret WWII ease to break of the code. Well It Was a Bayesian miser. Thanks to this book I now know that his excite was a result of his experience in Bletchley.

A book gives the glorious account of a history of Bayesian methods of the his inception until his blossoming in some recent decades of an age of computer.
