The Unfinished Game: Pascal, Fermat, and the Seventeenth-Century Letter that Made the World Modern

The Unfinished Game: Pascal, Fermat, and the Seventeenth-Century Letter that Made the World Modern - Keith J. Devlin I appreciate the import of this idea, and the math behind it. I mostly liked the presentation - bits of the letters and the history behind them. Something about the writing - the style perhaps - didn't sit right with me. Will read some of Devlin's online column to see if I can narrow it down sometime.
