Andrew Wiles published the first and only? The”Fermat’s Enigma” review by Erica Fremat. It is a superb account of the proof of the last theorem from Fermat’s notebook wimon be proven. This book is a grea Simon Singh gives an excellent account of the quest for the solution to Fermat’s puzzle. This was a linkage between two far-flung branches of mathematics that seemed to be totally unrelated.

That may be a disappointment to some, but it’s not at all unreasonable in my opinion. In situations like this, people always tend to give all the praise to people like Andrew Wiles, without realizing on how much work and discoveries made by other people his work relies on.
