An ideal book for enlivening undergraduate mathematics…he (Dunham) has Euler dazzling us with cleverness, page after page. — Choice

Mathematician William Dunham has written a superb book about the life and amazing achievements of one of the greatest mathematicians of all time. Unlike earlier writings about Euler, Professor Dunham gives crystal clear accounts of how Euler ingeniously proved his most significant results, and how later experts have stood on Euler’s broad shoulders. Such a book has long been overdue. It will not need to be done again for a long long time. — Martin Gardner

William Dunham has done it again! In “Euler: the Master of Us All”, he has produced a masterful portrait of one of the most fertile mathematicians of all time. With Dunham’s beautiful clarity and wit, we can follow with amazement Euler’s strokes of genius which laid the groundwork for most of the mathematics we have today. — Ron Graham, Chief Scientist, AT&T

Thanks so much for passing on this post! I am really glad that you enjoyed the video. It is really amazing that we can prove how many hexagons there are on the soccer ball without even counting. Euler was a genius!

I really enjoyed the video and I’ll pass this post on to my daughter-in-law who teaches college math and loves soccer.
