Disappointing and lacking in mathematical insight.,
This review is from: The Man Who Knew Infinity: Life of the Genius Ramanujan (Paperback)
I bought this book after reading many others on popular mathematics. I found the book very slow, with heavy repetition of only a few themes. While Ramanujan was clearly an incredible man the book concentrates mostly on the incidental parts of his life and largely ignores the mathematical details the area I believe that defined him as an incredible individual. There was virtually no detail of any of his mathematical achievements making rather a dry biography lacking in interesting detail.
