Finding Fibonacci, Quest to Rediscover the Genius Who Changed the World – Keith Devlin

Review From User :

The author makes the case for the fundamental importance of Fibonacci's 1238 manuscript as a source for the introduction and acceptance of the Hindu digits 1 thru 9 in Western commerce and problem solving, vastly simplifying the way arithmetic can be done. Using solved problems he transformed the way we think mathematically. The Fibonacci sequence is only a minor footnote. He gets little recognition today for his contribution.
