It gets pretty advanced. What we teach in high school was really understood by the 18th century so maybe half the book is kinda wasted. It really helped me when students would ask me "why" we had to study this stuff if I could wax poetic about who and how it was figured out.

A good read if your mathematically inclined. Indespensible if you teach the stuff. ( )
