Summary
  • Simple, lyrical text provides a beautiful introduction to the world of math and a fascinating look at the unique character traits that made Paul Erdös, or "Uncle Paul," a great man who followed his own path in life
  • Growing up in Hungary during WWI, Erdos tried school but chafed at the rules and convinced his mother that he should study at home. He was fascinated by numbers from an early age, and by the time he was 20, he was known as The Magician from Budapest. Unable to do common tasks such as cooking, laundry, or driving, he spent his adult life flying around the world, staying with other mathematicians, and working collaboratively on challenging math problems
