    Awesome history of the mathematical and logical foundations of computer science from Leibniz to Turing. The philosophical musing at the end were quite poor and did not rise to the level of quality of the presented history. So ignore the last section and this book is amazing.

    One of the best books I've read. A concise summary of developments in mathematics in the last two centuries, and how it led into computer science. One of the best books I've read. A concise summary of developments in mathematics in the last two centuries, and how it led into computer science.
