From the reviews:

"The author, [...], has written a book which will be of service to all who are interested in this by now vast subject. [...] This is a book of many virtues: mathematical, historical, and pedagogical. Parts of it could be used for a graduate complex manifolds course.
J.A. Carlson inMathematical Reviews, 1987

"There are many mathematicians, or even physicists, who would find this book useful and accessible, but its distinctive attribute is the insight it gives into a brilliant mathematician's work. [...] It is intriguing to sense between the lines Spencer's optimism, Kodaira's scepticism or the shadow of Grauert with his very different methods, as it is to hear of the surprises and ironies which appeared on the way. Most of all it is a piece of work which shows mathematics as lying somewhere between discovery and invention, a fact which all mathematicians know, but most inexplicably conceal in their work."
N.J. Hitchin in theBulletin of the London Mathematical Society, 1987

Kunihiko Kodaira was born on March 16, 1915 in Tokyo, Japan. He graduated twice from the University of Tokyo, with a degree in mathematics in 1938 and one in physics in 1941. From 1944 until 1949, Kodaira was an associate professor at the University of Tokyo but by this time his work was well known to mathematicians worldwide and in 19...
