A good way of entering the realm of Number Theory as an outsider Discusses important unsolved problems in Number Theory which are _and_ less easy to understand and the author does a great job of making them understanable , like the Odd Perfect Numbers conjecture, the Riemann Hypothesis, the ABC conjecture, and the Birch Swinnerton Dyer conjecture, and which have potential to be appealing to anyone in this way, the author expects to lure some readers into his research field The presentation is h [...]
Hilariously amazing I m glad I found a book that shares a love for both numbers and humor I could not stop laughing at the frequent jokes It never got old Even though it s sometimes funny, Trolling Euclid still gives readers a great deal of information relating to numbers You ll hear about such interesting conjectures such as Goldbach s, Twin Prime, Collat z, Riemann Hypothesis, and much .
Super excellentNot many books take you through number theory and also make you laugh out loud Highly recommended 4 5 because of minor typos and some jokes could be refined a little.
