This article is in the list of "The 10 Strangest Mathematical Titles Ever Published", by Clifford Pickover, in his book "Wonders of Numbers: Adventures in Mathematics, Mind, and Meaning"


I knew it was familiar! Wonders of Numbers is a great book, and I owe it much of my interest in recreational mathematics.


Brain? I always assumed he had two. The title of the article doesnt match the brains described in the text.


He has two halves of a brain.
