Very insightive to pythagoras' life. Quite helpful for school assignments and what not, this preview of the book may not be as helpful as the actual book because the preview is missing a hundred odd pages or so. Recomended.
Review: Pythagoras: Pioneering Mathematician and Musical Theorist of Ancient GreeceUser Review - James Piper - Goodreads
Most know the name but I suspect they know next to nothing about him. In fact, little is known with any certainity. Records are sparse. He influenced math, music, religion, cosmology. Perhaps he was the starting point of these studies. Too bad more wasn't known. Interesting read. Read full review
