I have sent myself a task in these lectures which is genuinely difficult and which, If I were determined to begin by making every excuse for failure, I might present as almost impossible. Read the first page

A nice reprint of a valuable book 31 Mar. 2000
By UMESH NAIR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a great book for those of you who want to learn the works of the great Indian Mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan. It was written by G.H.Hardy, who intorduced Ramanujan to the western world of Mathematics. 12 subjects are discussed, as written by Ramanujan, with comments. The layout and printing of the book are excellent. This edition corrected a number of errors of the previous editions. I expected a little more comments by the editors for people less proficient in Number theory. You will need a copy of "An Introduction to Theory of Numbers" by Hardy and Wright, to follow this book. If you want to know more about Ramanujan, some great books are: "The Man who knew infinity: A Life of the Genius Ramanujan" by Robert Kanigel (the best biography of Ramanujan) and "A Mathematician's apology" by GH Hardy et al.

Difficult to impossible read but language is beautfiul 11 Oct. 2012
By Raghuram Krishnaswamy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The other reviewer (Mr. Nair) has made an error saying the book was 12 subject areas written by Ramanujan. It is not. These are 12 lectures given by Hardy on Ramanujan's work (not his writing) at Harvard University. The book is titled "12 lectures as suggested by his life". R was long dead when these lectures were delivered. He discusses at length R's genius(including why he was great) and his failings (at Number Theory, not life). Hardy's prose is stunning, the kind that is not spoken or written anymore. However, unless you are a specialist of The Number Theory (Perhaps reading George Andrews may help (cheap alt)), most, if not all, of this book will soar high above your head. It is a fun keep however, as I mentioned, simply for the language if not anything else and getting a glimpse in to the great man from a great man who befriended him, citing his friendship as "The one romantic incident of my life was discovering Ramanujan". Perhaps reading Hardy's book on Pure Mathematics is a good precursor to understanding some of the book. Hardy uses researcher techniques, not textbook techniques employed in college.
