Infinitesimal: How a Dangerous Mathematical Theory Shaped the Modern WorldInfinitesimal: How a Dangerous Mathematical Theory Shaped the Modern World by Amir Alexander
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Interesting look at how the idea of infinitesimals was pretty subversive to the Jesuits. The book is a bit meandering and long and has more history than math, but I enjoyed it!
