Mathematical Digest Short Summaries of Articles about Mathematics in the Popular Press "Prime Time for the Riemann Hypothesis": Review of Prime Obsession: Bernhard Riemann and the Greatest Unsolved Problem in Mathematics by John Derbyshire. Reviewed by Brian Conrey. Science, 3 October 2003, pages 6061. In addition to providing a positive review of the book, Conrey also gives a nice description of the problem and of progress toward its solution. He writes, "In Prime Obsession, John Derbyshire has produced a remarkably accessible and deeply researched description of this fascinating problem." Two other books about the Riemann hypothesisThe Riemann Hypothesis (which in the United Kingdom is titled Dr. Riemann's Zeros) by Karl Sabbagh, and The Music of the Primes by Marcus du Sautoyhave also recently been published. Conrey writes, "If you like accounts of mathematics written for nonmathematicians, you will want to read all three."
