My Brain Is Open: The Mathematical Journeys of Paul Erdos: Reviewed

Author:Bruce Schechter
Reading Level (Conceptual):Sophisticated readers
Reading Level (Vocabulary):Children 12 and up
Genre:Non-fiction, biography
Year of publication:2000

Biography of the brilliant mathematician, Paul Erdos. Inspiring because this extremely odd guy, who spoke in code and could not perform the normal functions most other human beings usually have to do (such as pay bills and cash checks), found ways to mentor promising young mathematicians and revolutionize mathematical thinking.

The descriptions of some of Erdos Book Proofs are wonderful. Better written and more concise than The Man Who Loved Only Numbers, The : The Story of Paul Erdos and the Search for Mathematical Truth
