As biographies go, you want to be enthralled, you want to be reminded what you already know and learn more. With graphic novels, and now graphic biographies and memoirs, as a growing Genre I thought a comparison of three I read would be insightfull. I'm enjoying this genre so much I just couldn't resist. Special thanks to Steenz, my library friend for turning me on to graphic novels in general. The graphic biographies I read were The Case of Alan Turing: The Extraordinary and Tragic Story of Grapic Novels by Number- Logicomix, Feynman, The Case of Alan Turing Lauren Miller 02/24/2017

As a Mathematician I enjoy finding nonfiction that is not too "mathy", one that makes subjects such as probability approachable to non-Mathematicians. This is the first in a series of books I've been reading for fun and research. (This one was mostly for Fun). These reviews will highlight some of the more interesting parts of the book as well as rate how approachable the book made its subject matter and how educational the books really are. The first book I am reviewing is The Improbability Books by Number - The Improbability Principle Lauren Miller 02/17/2017

Coming in at 253 pages, this is the little book which is full of mathematical gold. Hans Magnus Enzensberger wrote The Number Devil in 1998. This was when I was 8, and in 4th grade. How did I miss this gem? I would have fallen down the mathematical rabbit hole even sooner. Disguised as a novel, the math in this book includes: Pascal's Triangle, Fibonacci Numbers, set theory, factorials, math 'tricks', and math history. It even has a brief excerpt of Russell's proof that 1+1 equals 2 (although Books by Number- The Number Devil Lauren Miller 02/03/2017
