I can write only a short review, as I read only a small part of this book. Specifically, I read one chapter -- that on Leonhard Euler -- and found at least three factual mistakes. The author seems a bit too eager to focus on any mention of the scientists' "faith" to concern himself with historical accuracy. This book should be used only with a serious reference nearby to clear up the mistakes contained herein.
