Poincare’s Prize

Tonight I finished reading this book about the solution of Poincare’s Conjecture. It discussed the life of Poincare, the history of attempts to solve the conjecture, and finally discusses the solving of the conjecture by Grisha Perelman. Szpiro does a fine job of making this interesting story accessible to the layperson.
