Summary As the inventor of Logarithms, John Napier made one of the greatest advances in the history of mathematics. His development of ingenious calculating tool--Napier's Bones--was in use for over 200 years. He also invented the 'tank' and 'submarine'. This book brings to light the relatively uncelebrated story of this genius.
