'This eminently readable book will be treasured not only by students and their teachers but also by all those who seek to make sense of the elusive macrocosm of twentieth-century mathematics.' Zentralblatt MATH
'… pleaseant reading for everyone with a solid real analysis background at undergraduate level, even before reading Pólya-Szegö. In fact, even researchers working on topics close to those in this book can find much to add to their repertoire.' Tamás Erdélyi, Department of Mathematics, Texas A&M University
'The book is special … A large mathematics department with a functional graduate program could easily consider to offer a course based on this book.' Tamas Erdelyi, Journal of Approximation Theory
