The Archimedes Codex: How a Medieval Prayer Book Is Revealing the True Genius of Antiquity's Greatest Scientist - Reviel Netz;William Noel A very good history of a unique manuscript. A bit of accessible mathematics, hidden history, and textual criticism thrown in make this a good read; both authors lack of writing experience do detract a little. After this I read on wikipedia that this story continues; I almost wish the book had been delayed a few more years.
