In 1859, German mathematician Bernhard Riemann presented a paper to the Berlin Academy that would forever change mathematics. The subject was the mystery of prime numbers. At the heart of the presentation was an idea that Riemann had not yet proved--one that baffles mathematicians to this day. Solving the Riemann Hypothesis could change the way we do business, since prime numbers are the lynchpin for security in banking and e-commerce. It would also have a profound impact on the cutting edge of science, affecting quantum mechanics, chaos theory, and the future of computing. Leaders in math and science are trying to crack the elusive code, and a prize of $1 million has been offered to the winner. In this engaging book, Marcus du Sautoy reveals the extraordinary history behind the holy grail of mathematics and the ongoing quest to capture it.

In my deepest moments of reflection, I have prayed to be sent back to that pivotal moment in time where history can be changed. Everything would be as it was, except of course I would retain the knowledge that I now possess. Cheating fate, the powers that be and the very hands of time itself, I would fly back to 1987. I would inhabit the body of the young naive kid I once was and try to contain my excitement as the view came into focus....I sat at the table, somewhat shaken by my travel through space and time and blinked as the lights of the nightclub filled my eyes. I could hear the soft, romantic music and was vaguely aware of the couples out on the dance floor. Then my heart skipped as I finally saw clearly the woman who sat across from me. *It was Ann.* I was stunned by her appearance, so much more beautiful than the faded and worn pictures in my mind. 1.

Do the Kardashians really believe in God? An E! News star mixes memoir and investigative journalism in his own rollicking, poignant, and masterful version of A. J. Jacobs´ A Year of Living Biblically, chronicling his own spiritual journey as he investigates the religious lives of the rich and famous in Hollywood. Ken Baker, the popular LA-based senior correspondent for E! News and E! Online, has worked in Hollywood for over 20 years - hobnobbing with multimillionaires and interviewing movie, music, and TV stars such as George Clooney, Britney Spears, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, and Kim Kardashian day in and day out. In that time, and in the land of fairy tales and double-dealing, Baker had become one of the materialistic, carnal people he never wanted to be, abandoning his Christian heritage and losing his spiritual center in the process. Finding himself alone and confused one day in Vegas, he has an awakening that puts him on a journey to find God not only in himself but in the celebrities whose lives intersect with his both professionally and personally. In The Ken Commandments, Ken sets off on an experiment that will bring him closer to the spiritual lives of such diverse luminaries as Deepak Chopra, Tom Cruise, Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, Joel Osteen, and Gwen Stefani and, in the process, help to reveal the light and dark of Hollywood in new ways. From New Age spirituality, to Bible-based Christianity, to Scientology, to Buddhist retreats, to meditation classes, to Atheism studies, to the megachurch of the nation´s top TV preacher, Baker immerses himself in a range of spiritual practices side by side with the celebrity set, revealing a world that is deeper, more questioning, and more God-centered than you´d ever imagine. 1.
