Reviews - What do customers think about Niels Henrik Abel and his Times?

A biography by his countryman.  Mar 9, 2003
Abel's short life will leave an indellible mark in all mathematicians ( professional and amateur )'s heart.
This superb biography will remind us again and pay an respect
to this genius. One will be hard to resist sadness about
reading this book, but fact is fact, history cannot be changed.
Let us pay a tribute to this superb genius again by reading
this biography.
Excellent  Jan 10, 2001
This is an excellent book about the norwegian mathematical genius Niels Henrik Abel. This book is also very painfull to read, since it is about a man who dies at only 26 years of age, just before he is to reach to glory. It's a tragedy. But none the less what he accomplish in his life is just tremendous. This is a real book. And it will not leave you unaffected.
