As I mention in my book The Möbius Strip, in 1858 the German mathematician August Möbius (1790–1868) simultaneously and independently discovered the Möbius strip (a wonderful twisted object with just one side) along with a contemporary scholar, the German mathematician Johann Benedict Listing (1808–1882).

The book covers thousands of years of the history of math and goes back past the The Math book is quite interesting although Im not sure whether this is more of a Math or History book, but it was still very fun to read and I learned a lot more about Euler and other famous mathematicians. The book flows very nicely and the pictures really help to grasp strange concepts that would otherwise be very confusing. It is fun to read for anyone who has an interest in math, history or the sciences.
