An inspirational text from a legendary mathematician,
By A Customer
This review is from: A Mathematician's Apology (Canto) (Paperback)
This is simply a superb book, and I am not sure that any review I write will really do this classic text justice. The book provides an insight into the life of one of the 20th Century's best Pure Mathematicians, G.H. Hardy and is an inspirational text for all those wishing to persue, or who are in, a career in mathematics. The book provides a wonderful mix of tones, moments of happiness, poignant memories, and sadness. The foreword by C.P. Snow is excellent and provides a thoughtful yet entertaining introduction to G.H. Hardy. I recommend this book wholeheartedly - it really should have a place on every mathematicians bookshelf.
