"Love and Math tells the two intertwined stories of mathematics and the adventure of one man in learning it. The result is a story about how he became one of the twenty-first century's leading mathematicians, working on one of the biggest ideas to come out of mathematics in the last 50 years: the Langlands Program. As Frenkel proves, a mathematical formula can be as elegant and beautiful as a painting, a poem, or a piece of music. And the process of creating new mathematics is just that, an artistic pursuit-- a deeply personal experience, which requires passion, dedication, and love. In Love and Math, Frenkel shows readers the aesthetic-- and the truly powerful-- side of mathematics, and enables appreciation of the field even from those who have long been terrified by it."-- Provided by publisher.

Collaborating the fundamentals of quantum physics as it relates to the beauty that exists around us with an intriguing memoir of a humble, successful Russian mathematician, this novel occupied every niche interest I never knew I had. Frenkel's insight complimented with entertaining anecdotes allowed for a casual read, intermittent with breaking down concepts to universal phenomena that has me eager to expand my knowledge further.

The author is very good in explaining in simple terms the idea behind concepts most authors don't even try to [and/or fail] to give any insight.
A wealth of material that at least gives reader the idea if not the details.
His struggle against anti-Semitic school/government policy in Russian of 1980s is very enlightening.
