5.0 out of 5 stars Highly addictive! 11 June 2014
By Peter McGowan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I strongly advise against buying this book - it will waste hundreds of hours with fascinating patterns and absorbing connections that most never dreamed of! While requiring nothing more than middle high school mathematics, the text still contains quite advanced ideas - for example and simple proof that Format number that are prime are also the constructible number with ruler and compass. There are also superb discussions (in an entertaining way) of Farey series, primitive roots, Pellian numbers, Pythagorean triples, quadratic residues, prime number distribution and the zeta function, and on and on - never boring. Essential reading for budding numbers' men! The book is not new but it has stood the test of time and is still a masterpiece - one of the greatest time burners I have ever read!

3.0 out of 5 stars kind of dated, but still fun 27 January 2015
By G. Player - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
this book doesn't really stand up to modern books, in that it is just a little too dry... not enough explanation as to the "why" that these things work.
there aren't as many metaphors and mental exercises to help you wrap your head around all of the topics as you would expect if this were a modern book.
I have enjoyed reading it though

5.0 out of 5 stars Serious Fun With Number Theory 22 June 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An excellent book for anyone who enjoys fooling around with numbers. I mainly used it for programming a HP50g to solve Pell's equations, as well as other fun programs, i.e.,finding all pairs of squares which sum up to a given number (for example the hp50g takes about 25 seconds to find the 8 pairs of squares that sum up to 8,724,165,747,570, once you write the program. Has chapter with challenging problems, although you will need to spend quite some time reading the book (and understand what you are reading)!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting -- May be a difficult read for a high school math student 28 March 2014
By Michael Gibb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is extremely entertaining and shows the intriguing interplay between the different properties of numbers. I would recommend this book to anyone interested and proficient in mathematics. Even though the book states that it has a target audience of anyone who has completed high school mathematics, the depth and breadth of the analysis and theory presented in this book lends itself to a much more educated reader. I can not recommend this book highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for a numbers geek 19 May 2014
By Maarten Daams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book for everyone who loves to learn about the properties of numbers at times. Though somewhat difficult at times and a bit old-fashioned now, still a great book that I keep going back to time and again.
