When a book about a fiendish mathematical conundrum tops the bestseller lists there is clearly something remarkable about it. Particularly when- unlike some scientific bestsellers- it is so enthusiastically read and recommended.

Synopsis

Fermat's Last Theorem by Simon Singh

The solution of Fermat's Last Theorem is an important mathematical development of the 20th century. In 1963, a schoolboy browsing in his local library stumbled across this problem. Aged just ten, Andrew Wiles dreamed that he would crack it. This work presents the story of the solving of this puzzle, and a tale of sacrifice and determination.

Reviews

“I was gripped by Simon Singhâs “Fermatâs Last Theorem”…Singhâs book puts across the romance of the discipline and the engaging wit and comradeship of the mathematical community.â Independent
