Honorable Mention for the 1998 Award for Best Professional/Scholarly Book in Mathematics, Association of American Publishers

One of Choice's Outstanding Academic Titles for 1999

"A book-length hymn of praise to the square root of minus one."-- Brian Rotman, Times Literary Supplement

" An Imaginary Tale is marvelous reading and hard to put down. Readers will find that Nahin has cleared up many of the mysteries surrounding the use of complex numbers."-- Victor J. Katz, Science

"[ An Imaginary Tale] can be read for fun and profit by anyone who has taken courses in introductory calculus, plane geometry and trigonometry."-- William Thompson, American Scientist

"Someone has finally delivered a definitive history of this 'imaginary' number. . . . A must read for anyone interested in mathematics and its history."-- D. S. Larson, Choice

"Attempting to explain imaginary numbers to a non-mathematician can be a frustrating experience. . . . On such occasions, it would be most useful to have a copy of Paul Nahin's excellent book at hand."-- A. Rice, Mathematical Gazette

"Imaginary numbers! Threeve! Ninety-fifteen! No, not those kind of imaginary numbers. If you have any interest in where the concept of imaginary numbers comes from, you will be drawn into the wonderful stories of how i was discovered."-- Rebecca Russ, Math Horizons

"There will be something of reward in this book for everyone."-- R.G. Keesing, Contemporary Physics

"Nahin has given us a fine addition to the family of books about particular numbers. It is interesting to speculate what the next member of the family will be about. Zero? The Euler constant? The square root of two? While we are waiting, we can enjoy An Imaginary Tale."-- Ed Sandifer, MAA Online

"Paul Nahin's book is a delightful romp through the development of imaginary numbers."-- Robin J. Wilson, London Mathematical Society Newsletter
