The Boy Who Loved Math: The Improbable Life of Paul Erdos
Most people think of mathematicians as solitary, working away in isolation. But that wasn’t what Paul Erdos did. At the age of four, he could ask you when you were born and then calculate the number of seconds you had been alive. But he didn’t learn to butter his own toast until he turned 20. Instead, he traveled around the world, collaborating on an astonishing number of projects and changing the way people everywhere thought about math.
With a simple, lyrical text and richly layered illustrations, this is a beautiful introduction to the world of math and a fascinating look at the unique character traits that made “Uncle Paul” a great man.
