A biography worth your time

Absolutely a very good book. The only complain is about the product, Little, Brown books seem to be very poorly made for India- I ended up pasting 2 halves of the book. Get the Random House paper back instead. Fascinating content though.

Captivating

Excellent read & a well researched book. The genius of Ramanujan is perplexing. A bit sad that he had to die so young. Can't imagine what he'd have done living a few more years in good health. A must read for any math fan - strongly recommended!

About the quality of the production

This review is NOT about the contents of this book - of course that is of very
high quality. But the item is miserbale in production quality. Very bad quality pages and
equally bad printing. I think for Rs. 395/- it was really being fooled by hachette India
who are publishing it specially for Indian readers.

Bad book quality

I have bought quite a number of books on flipkart. but this is the first book whose quality of paper, printing is very bad. it is printed by some delhi/noida company. after paying 400 odd rupees, it is surprising to get such a bad quality. i think the foreign edition of the book selling for 900 odd rupees would be better. do not buy this book, buy the foreign edition.

The Man who knew Infinity by Robert Kanigel

Most of us have heard of the Mathematical genius, Ramanuajam, and how G H Hardy, a British Mathematician facilitated his visit to England. We are also aware of the amazing insights of Ramanujam and how he and Hardy worked together to bring these insights into wider knowledge. However, the book by Kanigel traces the history of Ramanujam and his ordinary background from a small town in south India in such great detail and with such a human touch that the book is worth every minute spent in reading it. The author has given a lot of importance also to the mathematical elements of Ramanujam's great

Amazing, moving.

It is sad that the best biography about an Indian mathematician had to be written by a foreigner. The book gives you a fascinating insight into Srinivasan Ramanujan's life. Interested in mathematics from early on, Ramanujan overcame all barriers, including a complete lack of formal mathematical training, to become one of the greatest mathematicians of the 20th century. The book explores Ramanujan's mind which worked very differently from an average 'great' mathematician. Focused on intuitive reasoning rather than rigorous proof, Ramanujan was often disregarded, only to be discovered later by C

No need to tell his story here, but Robert Kanigel's has done an amazing work of introducing the world to the man behind the genius mind. The book is not only a narrative but clearly portraits the man with his genius, his flaws and most importantly his beliefs. I have read some other biography of Ramanujan but this definitely is the best researched, best collated and most authoritative biography.

I have placed this book with my other prized-possessions and it stands out because of its quality. Such a good book do deserv
