bookshelves: mathematics, history-mathematics

This was the first book I read about symmetry and its related mathematical topic, group theory, and it is excellent.

This book takes the same approach as many other similar books, focusing on the history (tragic in the case of Galois and Abel) and personalities, rather than the details of the mathematics.

This is a delightful read!

Highly recommended!
