The Man of Numbers

Just got a tweet from Keith Devlin reminding all that his soon to be released biography of  Fibonacci is on sale at 35% off for preorders.  This is one of those characters in math history who should be on the reading list of every middle and high school teacher.  I wasn't asked to review it (shame on you Mr. Devlin) but given the subject, his level of knowledge, and the number of really great books he has already written, I'm betting it will be a great one.  I put mine on order today...  Just in time for summer reading on the beach...
