Then we will just have to write different mental history books ;-)
I have studied ANW intensely and my respect for him as a deep thinker grew
study after study. He was not only a leader in the mathematical world, but
eventually became also the most outstanding leader of his time in the
academical world at large. He is a practical example of leadership. Many
of his wise practical sayings are actually profound insights into
leadership as such.
