I heard some rumors about a new book coming out.

from what i heard, the book, titled 'I am number 1', tells a story about One, who lives
in a numberbased world. the world is divided into clans . every number that lives in this
world is a member of a clan according to what composite prime factors it has.

the story will be a mix of a novel and bunch of proofs and facts about number theory!

Anyone else who heard about this??? who wrote it, when is it coming out?

That sounds cool. I haven't heard anything about it, though, and Googling doesn't turn up much.

"I am number four" comes up in search results, but that doesn't seem to be related to number theory.
