Intelligent and moving, a great book.
am 22. Juli 1998
Godfrey Hardy was a great mathematician, and then some! His Apology is a discourse on the beauty of mathematics and, especially, of a life devouted to mathematical investigation. The author has, at the time of writing, passed his prime, and , being Hardy, does it no more. That's why it is moving, although, given the British love for understatement, this is really very subtle. The novelist C.P.Snow writes a brilliant introduction (actually larger that the Apology itself) on the figure of Hardy. You'll never forget either!
