Genius at Play: The Curious Mind of John Horton Conway is a biography of John Horton Conway written by Siobhan Roberts and published by Bloomsbury in 2015; a paperback edition followed in 2016.
||Genius At Play is an intimate and unbuttoned investigation into the mind of an endearing genius, laying bare Conway's professional and personal idiosyncrasies. The intimacy comes courtesy of the man himself. He generously granted Roberts full access, though not without the occasional grudge and grumble: “Oh hell,” he'd say. “You're not going to put that in the book. Are you?!?”
