Alternative to God Created the Integers ~ Stephen Hawking

  1. Alternative to "God Created the Integers" ~ Stephen Hawking

    Hi! I was thinking about buying a decent book covering the history of mathematics (from a fairly technical point of view), and "God Created the Integers" by Stephen Hawking seemed to be the perfect book. However, after having read some reviews, turns out it's not all that great (there are a lot of typos, no index, some important mathematicians are left out, etc.).

    I wanted to know if there were any other books which were similar to "God Created the Integers". The one's I've found are not as in depth (only 2-4 pages per mathematician, for example).

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
