The Adventures of a Mathematician

Adventures of a Mathematician - Stanislaw M. Ulam

Good book and a successful career. Universities were still offering him posts when he died around 75 years old. My fav part was how he would continually state: so and so (faculty or students from Lwow University in Poland) "murdered by the Germans" in 194x, Sad but interesting the way he would state it. It obviously left quite an impression on him. 


He left Poland and never saw many of his friends nd family ever again.
