This is the title of a bio of the great Paul Erdos that I read a few years back. I thought it was great by giving us a glimpse into the "normal" side of life of the great genius. Has anybody else read it?

I saw the movie, it was amazing. Really liked it. Whenever I have time I'm going to pick up the book and read it.
