I second the recommendation.  The articles on math are well written, 
though probably won't teach much new to FOM readers.  But some of the 
biographical information is also interesting.  Some of the photos 
surprised me when I examined them closely.  For example, there's a report 
card in which Goedel earned a "sehr gut" in every subject that he took, 
except for one subject in which he earned only a "gut."  His weak subject?
