Picture Indiana Jones
as a mathematician.
“Riveting tales from his time in the military, the Vietnam War, Berkeley in the ’70s, six Communist countries during the Cold War, and Georgia Tech in the ’80s—all retold alongside his academic success and mathematical breakthroughs.”
“Thoughtful, funny, and evocative, Ted Hill takes us through a life well-lived . . . An intensely personal story that will appeal to every profession, and to every generation!”
—General Wesley Clark, former NATO Supreme Commander
