    Paul Erdős was a giant of twentieth century mathematics whose results remain hugely influential. While the popular press emphasized his eccentricities, those who knew Uncle Paul — as he was universally called — were enthralled by his repeated reference to The Book, a powerful metaphor for the repository of all mathematical knowledge.
