Today Russian-born Berkeley professor Edward Frenkel is regarded as one of the world's rising stars of mathematics, but his academic career did not begin promisingly: Barred from Moscow State University because of anti-Semitic restrictions, he was forced to enroll instead at the lowly Gubkin University of Oil and Gas. He didn't let that stop him: Even before he had clutched his Harvard doctorate in hand, he was raising waves with his breakthroughs in advanced theory. His Love and Math is not, however, a tome only for the few. Instead, it is an eye-opening, awe-inspiring, surprisingly accessible testimonial about the journey of one man and the beauty of mathematics.
