Looking for History of Math book recommendations

Since taking my History of Math class in college several years ago, I've been very interested in this subject. I've been picking up history of math books as I find them, biographies, textbooks, whatever I happen to come across but there's been a lot that have not been particularly well written.

I'm looking for recommendations of any history of math books that make a good read.

Thank you in advance,
