Mathematics is a field that many people shy away from, but there are some who had a passion for numbers and making discoveries regarding equations, measurements, and other numerical solutions in history.

They looked for ways to understand the world as it relates to numbers and their contributions have been very important. The book was short, so I suppose that if the equations were absent, the book wouldn't be a book, but equivalent to a novella if it were fiction.
