Steve Z.
"But I have no interest at all in his private life."

I've read the first five pages so far, Steve, and recommend your giving it a go.

It's a fascinating insight into his journey into academic life, from his own perspective, and from scrolling down and stopping at other points, I look forward to finishing it.

It's not an exposé in the daily mirror!

Bonzai:
"For this reason I never read biographies of mathematicians and scientists."

I wouldn't have chosen it myself, but someone gave me a copy of 'A Beautiful Mind' - very different from the film - a harrowing, but still fascinating insight into the mental torments that can sometimes accompany genius, a very thoroughly researched and dedicated work.
