From the epilogue to the German edition by Eberhard Knobloch:Thomas Sonar has traced the emergence and the escalation of this conflict, which was heightened by Leibniz's rejection of Newton's gravitation theory, in a grandiose, excitingly written monograph. With absolute competence, he also explains the mathematical context so that non-mathematicians will also profit from the book. Quod erat demonstrandum!

"The author's style of writing is vivid, interesting and accessible. Other good features of the book include numerous photographs and illustrations (many in color), and an extensive ten-page, small print, list of references. ... I look forward to the publication of other books in this series. ... It belongs on the shelf of anybody interested in the history of calculus, and it certainly belongs in any good university library." (Mark Hunacek, MAA Reviews, June, 2018)
