Long known as a mathematical storyteller, Howard Eves here writes his personal reminiscences mostly mathematical, some not. The cast of characters includes Albert Einstein, Norbert Wiener, Julian Lowell Coolidge, Maurice Frechet, Nathan Altshiller-Court, G. H., Hardy, and many other interesting figures whom he encountered in a long and active life in mathematics.

In "Mathematical Reminiscences" we read of Eves' famous mathematical museum, with its lock of Einstein's hair, Hardy's scarf, Veblen's bright yellow lead pencil, Wiener's hat, and much, much, more.
