For over 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 , after years of secret toil, Englishman Andrew Wiles announced to an astounded audience that he had cracked Fermat's Last Theorem. The book was The Last Problem by Eric Temple Bell. It gave the history of a mathematical problem that has its roots in ancient Greece, but that reached full maturity only in the seventeenth century when the French mathematician Pierre de Fermat inadvertently set it as a challenge for the rest of the world.

In Fermat's Enigma--based on the author's award-winning documentary film, which aired on PBS's Nova--Simon Singh tells the astonishingly entertaining story of the pursuit of that grail, and the lives that were devoted to, sacrificed for, and saved by it. Fermat’s Enigma Chapter 5. You want to know something cool about Fermat Enigma Book. It does not just talk about Pythagoras's Theorem, and Fermat’s Last Theorem but it also talks about imaginary numbers. Not everyone likes math but wait until you hear about imaginary numbers.
