Summary: In 1859, Bernhard Riemann, a little-known thirty-two year old mathematician, made a hypothesis while presenting a paper to the Berlin Academy titled ''On the Number of Prime Numbers Less Than a Given Quantity.''

Alternating passages of extraordinarily lucid mathematical exposi
tion with chapters of elegantly composed biography and history, Prime Obsession is a fascinating and fluent account of an epic mathematical mystery that continues to challenge and excite the world.
