Martin Gardner
(1914 -- 2010)
 
Martin Gardner (1914-2010) was a unique and phenomenal Popularizer of Science and Teacher who has taught how to love math and science.

I've been thrilled to read his books and grasp his wisdom since my very young ages. And I'm indebted to Martin Gardner for every moments I knew him, for his friendly and wise advices, and for opening to me thousands of ways to the Puzzle Universe.
