Seeing as how this is my first exposure to the RH, and I'm only fairly capable in math, I can't say whether or not this is the best place to start. I feel like I have a good sense about this great mathematical problem, which is due in part to Derbyshire's simple explanations. However, I think the way the book was edited may have caused a lot of confusion. I thought it a bit erratic, with too many tangents and I didn't like being constantly referred back to old chapters.
