Product description

Amazon.com Review

When Andrew Wiles of Princeton University announced a solution of Fermat's last theorem in 1993, it electrified the world of mathematics. After a flaw was discovered in the proof, Wiles had to work for another year--he had already labored in solitude for seven years--to establish that he had solved the 350-year-old problem. Simon Singh's book is a lively, comprehensible explanation of Wiles's work and of the star-, trauma-, and wacko-studded history of Fermat's last theorem. Fermat's Enigma contains some problems that offer a taste of the math, but it also includes limericks to give a feeling for the goofy side of mathematicians.

Review

“I was gripped by Simon Singh’s “Fermat’s Last Theorem”…Singh’s book puts across the romance of the discipline and the engaging wit and comradeship of the mathematical community.’ Independent

‘Unexpectedly gripping…The averagely numerate can catch a glimpse of the pure beauty of numbers without having to understand the calculations involved.’ Sunday Telegraph

‘Far from being a dry textbook it reads like the chronicle of an obsessive love affair. It has the classic ingredients that Hollywood would recognise.’ Daily Mail

‘If you enjoyed Dava Sobel’s “Longitude” you will enjoy this.’ Evening Standard
