That’s what its good for

The Calculus Wars by Jason Bardi
 
Having heard bits and pieces about the struggle for priority between Leibnitz and Newton, it was great to read a book that documented the history of their disagreement. The book lots of interesting bits and pieces including the fact that Leibnitz invented binary notation and the challange behind the Brachistochrone Problem.
