Brilliantly Written

The book is thoroughly researched and at times it feels like you are transported to that era. People without a mathematics background, may at times find the equations used in several pages a bit too much. But that should be expected when one is reading about one of the greatest mathematicians.

Lotus in mud

Lotus in mud is all that comes to my mind when I think about Ramanujan.

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, …

A magical story,brilliantly told

By far the best scientific biography I ever read.It's a magical story,of a person whose life and story almost sound mythical,a person who continues to be a source of inspiration for people around the world who are familiar with him.And it is a story told in a very engaging way by Robert Kanigel.The exhaustive research he did is remarkable. This book will captivate you and touch you and it will stay in your memory as one of the finest literary experiences you have had.And what is more,it is a very human tale.I've no hesitation in recommending that you buy this one immediately and maybe even gif

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.

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!

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

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

Ramanujan And Hardy

READ IT if you are interested in knowing about a man who went from Chennai to Cambridge in search of an environment to groom his natural talents in numbers. READ IT if you want to know about the only great mathematician that modern India has produced. READ IT if you are interested in a boy who derived many theorems all on his own, only to find out that many of them were already derived by mathematicians that came a little before him.READ IT........

The reasons are just too many.
