Review
Review:"It is hard to imagine a more gripping account of...this centuries-long drama of ingenious failures, crushed hopes, fatal duels, and suicides."
--Jim Holt, The Wall Street Journal
"Though Singh may not ask us to bring too much algebra to the table, he does expect us to appreciate a good detective story."
--Boston Sunday Globe
"The history of mathematics comes alive even for those who dread balancing their checkbooks."
--Publishers Weekly
"Singh captures the joys and frustrations of this quest for an extremely elusive proof...and builds to a truly engrossing climax. It's a mathematical page-turner."
--Library Journal

Fermat s Last Theorem: The Story of a Riddle That Confounded the World s Greatest Minds for 358 Years (Paperback) (ISBN: 9781841157917) Singh, Simon Quantity Available: 10
Book Description: HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 192 x 128 mm. Brand New Book. I have a truly marvellous demonstration of this proposition which this margin is too narrow to contain. It was with these words, written in the 1630s, that Pierre de Fermat intrigued and infuriated the mathematics community. For over 350 years, proving Fermat s Last Theorem was the most notorious unsolved mathematical problem, a puzzle whose basics most children could grasp but whose solution eluded the greatest minds in the world. In 1993, after years of secret toil, Englishman Andrew Wiles announced to an astounded audience that he had cracked Fermat s Last Theorem. He had no idea of the nightmare that lay ahead. In Fermat s Last Theorem Simon Singh has crafted a remarkable tale of intellectual endeavour spanning three centuries, and a moving testament to the obsession, sacrifice and extraordinary determination of Andrew Wiles: one man against all the odds.
