Source:  PU.M.A., Pure Math. Appl. 7, No.1-2, 1-12 (1996).
Review:  This peculiar obituary gives an interesting picture of the personality of Paul Erdös, ``the Albert Einstein of twentieth century mathematics''. The author was a lifelong friend of Erdös from their common childhood in Budapest. Erdös was the youngest Hungarian Ph.D. in math and the author was the second.
From the paper we can get to know Erdös's language, working and visiting habits, political attitude, outward appearance through several anecdotes.
