December’s Book of the Month is *The Pythagorean Theorem: A 4000-year History* by Eli Moar, published in 2007 by Princeton Science Library.

This is the third book that celebrates a famous equation, in this case one that is so well known that it needs little introduction. However, its history pre-dates Pythagoras by over 1000 years, and traces through many cultures.
