For many years, famed mathematics historian and master teacher Howard Eves collected stories and anecdotes about mathematics and mathematicians, gathering them together in six Mathematical Circles books. Thousands of teachers of mathematics have read these stories and anecdotes for their own enjoyment and used them in the classroom - to add entertainment, to introduce a human element, to inspire the student, and to forge some links of cultural history. All six of the Mathematical Circles books have been reissued as a three-volume edition. This three-volume set is a must for all who enjoy the mathematical enterprise, especially those who appreciate the human and cultural aspects of mathematics.

Review:

'The 360 different anecdotes compiled in these delightful volumes will add zest to every teacher's mathematical classes. There are appropriate selections for all levels of students. They are short, succinct, and at the same time given in simple settings which enable the reader to identify with the story and its implications. Here is presented the kind of material that makes the difference to the undecided student. I highly recommend you putting a copy next to your worktable.' The Mathematics Teacher
