Abstract

It must have taken some courage to undertake the task of writing a scientific biography of a towering figure like Henri Poincaré. Jeremy Gray took on the challenge and has delivered a wonderful book. Poincaré (1854–1912) is considered one of the most influential mathematicians of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. His oeuvre is vast and formidable.
