Product Details

Praise

“An excellent account of one of the most dramatic and moving events of the century.”
–Sir Roger Penrose, New York Times Book 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
