    Fermat's Last Theorem was also name-dropped during the evening and it has taken me this long to get to reading it! I was put off by feeling that I would probably be unable to understand any of the actual maths, however was pleasantly surprised to discover that my comprehension didn't fail me until over half-way through and the underlying story can be appreciated even if the algebra is skipped! Fermat's Last Theorem tells the story of this most enigmatic equation both through the mathematical history that led to its solution and through small biographies of the men and women who were fascinated by it. I was delighted to see female names, albeit only a few, but I hadn't expected any. Singh has a talent for presenting the human stories behind scientific and, in this case, mathematical achievements and I found myself getting quite caught up in the excitement. For a moment I even wished I had tried harder in maths at school - until the next bout of equations reminded me why I didn't! I think those who are versed in maths will probably get more from this book overall, but it was an interesting read even without full understanding and I appreciated the historical context of each separate discovery, layering up until Andrew Wiles' showstopping moment and beyond. As when I read Sophie's World, I doubt many of the names will remain in my memory for long, but I very much enjoyed Singh's writing and would turn to his books again to guide me though similar subjects. Anguilla, who we only ever know through his childhood nickname meaning 'the eel' was an orphan, raised in poverty by foster parents in a relatively remote Italian valley. As a child he seems to have accepted his lowly status, but never felt as though he fitted in and really belonged. As the book starts, Anguilla is returning to the valley after years spent away travelling and making a relative fortune in America. He is self-consciously aware of his new position in society and wanted his return to make waves. However lives and deaths have happened in his absence and the people he imagined himself impressing are no longer around to witness his triumph.

    Nuttigste klantenrecensies op site. Geverifieerde aankoop. An educational and sometimes engaging history of number theory's biggest problem and the many efforts it took to solve. Singh typically writes his unique histories for the casual layman I've also read "The Code Book" , which makes them as accessible as possible.

    However, if you have much of any background in mathematics, you'll find a few of the explanations annoyingly simple. Just skim past those and keep on. I could write a long paragraph explaining my love for this book but I think all the other great reviews show that pretty well.

    I usually read books slowly, about a few weeks to finish one. This book was an exception, I read it within a few days! As a math major, it gave this feeling of excitement that I haven't felt before. So one of the classes I decided to take this semester was Elliptic Curves!!

    If you're a math major, pick this book up ASAP!!! And if you're not, still pick it up as it tells the story of one of humanities greatest achievement of the 20th century. Great read! I loved this book. It is an easy read, a few math portions where the author does a great job explaining the concepts. A lot of history and a good feel for why Math people are Math people.
