This book gives very descriptive and touching history of a hidden gem of India, Ramanujan. This book inspire students to study what they really love and educators to improve their education system. This book shows many interesting controversial harmonies in Ramanujan such as his mathematical skill from, according to his word, from god. The only thing I think the book does not achieve is to illustrate the beauty of mathematics in Ramanujan's work. Even though the writer did a good job on Ramanujan's biography, he did not well explain why Ramanujan's work is beautiful. Other than that, it is a good book to inspire generations and generations.

Nice biography of Ramanujan. Gives you a good feel of the mathematics community in the early 20th century, as well as Oxford and Edwardian Britain.

A biography worth your time

Absolutely a very good book. The only complain is about the product, Little, Brown books seem to be very poorly made for India- I ended up pasting 2 halves of the book. Get the Random House paper back instead. Fascinating content though. Read full review
