Inspiring, facinating and wholely engrossing.

This book is a must read for students and others intellectuals and again those biography addicts.

One of the best biography on any mathematician I have read. Kanigel has not only made it readable for a non-mathematician but has also managed to keep the intensity.
Immense research and fantastic story building makes this book come alive.
Gives justice to a wholly uncelebrated life of a genius called Ramanujan.

Go on and add it to your collection!

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.

Exceptional life

The author has amazingly expressed the environment around sir Ramanujan throughout his life. As stated in prologue, the book has really maintained balance in both the mathematics and other aspects of Ramanujan's life. The author has simplified the mathematics to make it easy read for persons knowing less mathematics. The people not knowing anything of the mathematics can also admire greatly the achievements of Ramanujan. I have fairly good background in mathematics and I had greatly enjoyed r...

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!

Q:i am in 10th class can i understand it?
A:I firmly believe you can.If you are unable to parse through some math equations(not much given in the book) then you can skip that part,which absolutely doesn't make the read insignificant.
