Book review: My Search for Ramanujan
This autobiographical book by mathematician Ken Ono is less a memoir than an examination of what matters and what doesn't
Last December, under the umbrella of an effort to transform education called Gyanome (www.gyanome.org), Ken Ono and I did a Google Hangout, talking about Srinivasa Ramanujan and more. I enjoyed the session and I think he did too. When it went up on YouTube (www.tinyurl.com/OnoRamanujan), I thought it would get 50, perhaps 100, hits. After all, how many people would watch a half-hour discussion on mathematics?
