The Man Who Loved Only Numbers 

The reader learns the methods by which one may master a subject to perfection. Diligence, audacity and grit sum up what the brilliant mathematician espoused. Not only did he never give up on his ridiculous lust for mathemetatical purity, but he pushed forth against all doubters with the stubbornness only the most brilliant seem to contain in the minds. You learn how Erdos, one of the greatest contributors to Ramsey Theory, integrated whit and humor into his daily and professional life. You get a sense for his internal ticking clock, what motivates him, and why other mathematicians around the globe labeled it an honor to have any association with Erdos. His work is of utmost importance to mathematically inclined souls, but his story is applicable to us all.
