John Derbyshire On Math And Obsession

Kevin Holtsberry's new literary blog Collected Miscellany features an interview with National Reviews' John Derbyshire on his new book, Prime Obsession: Bernhard Riemann and the Greatest Unsolved Problem in Mathematics. It's an interesting interview and the site is sure to become a favored stop among enlightened authors.

I'll admit it, I was a math geek... A varsity football playing, cheerleader dating, calculus taking kind of math geek, back when it was still cool to be smart. If you liked A Beautiful Mind, this book should be right up your alley...

It was cool to be smart? W... (Below threshold)

It was cool to be smart? When did that happen? From 12:03 to 12:04 p.m on August 8, 1987?

I must have missed it.
