Here's Looking at Euclid: A Surprising Excursion Through the Astonishing World of Math - Alex Bellos Surprising Excursion - check, check. This is not an exhaustive history of mathematics, but rather a few stops along that road. Some great anecdotes along the way, and even the table of contents tells a story. I understand that some of the proofs and other math bits are on the author's website. A good read!
