Publisher Synopsis

'The range of themes covered is very wide ...' EMS Newsletter 'The author has done an admirable job of putting together historical anecdotes and excerpts from original sources with some deep and modern mathematics. The book is a pleasure to read for people interested in either orthogonal polynomials and continued fractions or the history of mathematics, and I imagine that any reader will walk away with a deeper appreciation of both.'
