The Boy Who Loved Math : <div> <p>Most people think of mathematicians as solitary, working away in isolation. And, it's true, many of them do. But Paul Erdos never followed the usual path. At the age of&nbsp;four, he could ask you when you were born and then calculate the number of seconds you had been alive in his head.&nbsp;But he didn't&nbsp;learn to&nbsp;butter his own bread until he turned twenty. Instead, he traveled around the world, from one mathematician to the next, collaborating on an astonishing number of publications. With a simple, lyrical text and richly layered illustrations, this is a beautiful introduction to the world of math and a fascinating look at the unique character traits that made "Uncle Paul" a great man.</p> <p>A <i>Kirkus Reviews</i> Best Book of 2013 A <i>New York Times Book Review</i> Notable Children's Book of 2013</p> </div>
