The Thirteenth Root

I read about a guy who holds the world's record in mental calculation. He was able to take the 13th root of a 200 digit number in just 48 minutes. A mathematician made sure he didn't cheat and a guard made sure he didn't write anything down. So, if you ever need the 13th root of a 200-digit number just call this guy, he lives in France.
