(Patrick W. Thompson in Journal for Research in Mathematics Education)
It promises to be the standard reference work for many years to come, and a source of both information and inspiration ... The book is a most welcome distillation and resource for further development in our collective sense of what constitutes advanced mathematical thinking, and how we can make it accessible to more people.
