An exquisite portrait...the rarest of literary achievements...Ramanujan's tale is the stuff of fable
an exciting and thoughtful book... should catch the imagination of any reader- even the reader with little mathematical background.
This is a fine example of a work of popularising mathematics, and deserves a wide readership.
Enthralling... one of the best scientific biographies I've ever seen.

But... The cover of the hard copy book is not the one in the page, the cover is that of a movie.
More of an advertisement for the movie. Apart from it, everything should be good.
However, the print quality is very, very poor and infact the text is slanted at a few places. Unimaginably pathetic readability of a great novel. Text is not sharp and seems blotted at many places. Hope the publisher corrects this in the future prints.
- Provides a good view of the peripheral characters as well.
- Explains the mathematics whereever possible but it doesn't hinders the experience if you do not follow the mathematics.
- Interestingly points out that Ramanujan may not have been as shy as thought out to be. He was someone always seeking recognition and this streak mostly led him to be discovered by Hardy (or as the author says - Ramanujan discovered Hardy).
- Didn't had any pictures but that maybe because mine was a kindle version.
It is said that there are still some of his formulae that are still not understood or proven by today's mathematicians!
I would recommend that every Bharatiye and any person with scientific temperament must read this book and get to know about Ramanujan and what makes him so great.
On the final note I would like to see this book translated in Bharatiye languages such as Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Assamese etc. so that masses have a chance to know the master of mathematics better.
