More about genius and people's perceptions as to what a genius is than about maths. Very little maths and what there is is explained very clearly. The book is about Simon Norton who when he was young (in his teens) was a truly spectacular mathematician. The final part of the book where the author tries to explain Simon's current position in the world of maths is well worth waiting for. Well worth a read.
