Reviews
“To many, mathematics is seen as an impenetrable wall of logic, symbols and formulas. I would highly recommend this book to those who want to get a meaningful glimpse of what is behind the wall and how the wall can be penetrated. There are too few books that describe the artistic, creative and human, and even spiritual aspect of the mathematical enterprise. ‘My search for Ramanujan’ is therefore a welcome addition to this literature.” (V. Kumar Murty, London Mathematical Newsletter (LMS), newsletter.lms.ac.uk, January, 2017)
“This is an intellectual autobiography and confession of the American number theorist Ken Ono … . book is accessible to any interested reader, mathematician or not. … the numerous photographs appear both in a center color plate section and in black and white where they belong in the text. … Very well written and a good study of how one mathematician’s career developed.” (Allen Stenger, MAA Reviews, maa.org, July, 2016)
