Man Who Loved Only Numbers
The Man Who Loved Only Numbers: an original biography of the genius Paul Erdős, who was arguably the most prolific mathematician of the last century , renowned for being just as much of an eccentric as a math whiz. This book won its author a 1999 Aventis Prize for Science Books and you can watch a lecture that the author, Paul Hoffman, gave about the subject. As you can expect for such a unique mathematician, this book is filled with anecdotes and fascinating facts.
