I enjoyed the first half of the book - which provides a good background of the subject matter. Towards the latter half I grew weary of the author's style of writing and also found all the non-mathematical anecdotes annoying. I think the author's effort to dumb everything down ultimately destroys the point of the book. But this is a good starting point for a layperson who is interested in the Riemann hypothesis. I yearn for a more mathematical book, though.
