G. H. Hardy (1877–1947) ranks among the great mathematicians of the twentieth century. He did essential research in number theory and analysis, held professorships at Cambridge and Oxford, wrote important textbooks as well as the classic A Mathematician's Apology, and famously collaborated with J. E. Littlewood and Srinivasa Ramanujan. Hardy was a colorful character with remarkable expository skills. This book is a feast of G. H. Hardy's writing. There are selections of his mathematical papers, his book reviews, his tributes to departed colleagues. Some articles are serious, whereas others display a wry sense of humor. And there are recollections by those who knew Hardy, along with biographical and mathematical pieces written explicitly for this collection. Fans of Hardy should find much here to like. And for those unfamiliar with his work, The G. H. Hardy Reader provides an introduction to this extraordinary individual.

'The editors are to be congratulated on putting together this beautiful 'reader' with material from so many different sources, which illustrates so well the life, character and work of one of the great mathematicians of the twentieth century, Godfrey Harold Hardy (1877-1947). Even if you are familiar with Hardy's masterpiece A Mathematician's Apology or his book on Ramanujan, Ramanujan: Twelve Lectures on Subjects Suggested by His Life and Work you will find a wealth of new and fascinating material in this 'reader' about Hardy.'
