From the book reviews:

"Van Dalen's biography of Brouwer should be read by anyone interested in the great man's life. It is a marvellously researched, non-judgmental, and comprehensive book that touches on all aspects of Brouwer's life and his cultural and intellectual milieu. ... As far as the style is concerned, the writing is clear and engaging." (A. C. Paseau, The Mathematical Gazette, Vol. 98 (543), November, 2014)
