From the reviews:
"The book is a study about the formation of Descartes's mathematical thought and its philosophical significance. ... The book is well documented as one can see also looking at the footnotes and the bibliography. There are also some interesting digressions as that concerning Jesuit mathematical education." (Raffaella Franci, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1045 (20), 2004)
"This magnificent volume originates in a 1989 Ph.D. thesis from Princeton University. ... The author aims at a reconstruction of R. Descartes' early mathematical career, studying the formation of his mathematical thought and relating it to his methodological and philosophical ideas. ... The volume, containing a wealth of material, is made accessible by indexes of names, subjects and treatises." (Volker Peckhaus, Mathematical Reviews, 2005 d)
