This entertaining book is more than a biography of Paul Erdos. Through the framework of the life of Erdos Hoffman teaches us about the work of other mathematicians whose work Erdos built upon or with whom he wrote papers. Paul Hoffman introduces a variety of mathematical conjectures and proofs in a way that is easy to grasp. It is one of the most interesting and accessible books on mathematics I have read.

I heard about this book in a review of another book on Goodreads.
