In this book Hardy (in 1940) justifies his life given to pure mathematics and the joy of seeing the beauty in that pure thing unblemished by reality or the real world. Very interesting view into the mind of a pure mathematician. I am glad my wife let me read it after she finished it.
One must have a bit of a mathematical bent of mind to even see what the author is talking about - if you are firmly based in only real things that you can touch and feel and that is your entire world - this would not be the book for you.
