'Letters to a Young Mathematician' by Ian Stewart

    I just finished reading it, and I liked it, but I wonder how much of his description of a day of a research mathematician is true?

    sounds like his comments would fit well in the who wants to be one forum. maybe you could ask some specific questions about a day of research there?
