Part genius, part rock star, even part mad man, John Horton Conway is one of the leading mathematicians of our time, perhaps best known for the Game of Life. This is the story of his improbable rise to the top of the profession. A good biography although pedantic at times and stuffed with too much math and not enough explanations to put it into layperson's terms.
