A very good account of algebraic number theory a branch of mathematics whose genesis was motivated by the search for a proof of Fermatâ€™s last theorem as well as a brief discussion of the ideas used by Andrew Wiles for his Wolfskehl Prize winning proof I thought the theory of ideals could be developed a bit further but I understand that the central theme of the book is on FLT A captivating beach read for the algebraically literate non specialist Good overview of algebraic number theory as it applies to FLT however not exactly pitched at beginners You'll want to have a grounding in abstract algebra linear algebra at the minimum Still even if you don't you can get a good sense of the big picture and a high level understanding of the advances in mathematics that were directly or indirectly related to attempts to solve FLT Overall a fascinating read if you're a math geek who wants something a little deeper than Simon Singh's pop treatment of Wiles' proof The book with shorter title seems useful but cannot find it in this database
