PRIME OBSESSION, my account of the fabulous Riemann Hypothesis and its
history, looks set fair to come out in April. Latest news from the
publisher is that John “Beautiful Mind” Nash is going to give us a
dust-jacket blurb. Since Prof. Nash is wellnigh the only mathematician
whose name is known to the general public (the only respectable one,
anyway–we ruled out the Unabomber) this is a great coup. When my editor
told me, I said: “I guess you’ll be wanting to make that the top blurb on
the back cover.” He: “Top? Back? I want it on the FRONT cover.”
