"Calculus Wars"  by Jason Bardi.   I enjoyed that book last summer.  It discuss specifically the "fight" between Newton and Liebnitz. 
 
ISBN # 978-1-56025-992-3

I like David Berlinski's "A Tour of the Calculus". It is a light, amusing fast read, with some good quotable lines. Good summertime faire. His "Infinite Ascent: a short history of mathematics" is ok too.
