Product description

Review

Praise for ‘Fermat’s Last Theorem’:

‘To read [‘Fermat’s Last Theorem’] is to realise that there is a world of beauty and intellectural challenge that is denied to 99.9 per cent of us who are not high-level mathematicians.’ The Times

‘This is probably the best popular account of a scientific topic I have ever read.’ Irish Times

‘Reads like the chronicle of an obsessive love affair. It has the classic ingredients that Hollywood would recognise.’ Daily Mail

Praise for ‘The Code Book’:

‘Singh’s account combines readability with a more meaty level of technical analysis than any other I have seen. His powers of explanation are as dazzling as ever.’ Guardian

‘A great book.’ Observer

‘Singh as the knack of making the frightening world of number theory seem like child’s play, there is more than enough here to interest the mathematically squeamish.’ Daily Telegraph

‘[Singh tells] these stories with infectious relish…He alternates between explanation of how ciphers are constructed and are cracked, and tales of the skulduggery surrounding them.’ Sunday Times
