Fermat's Enigma: The Epic Quest to Solve the World&hellip von Simon Singh
A mind boggling trip into the world of number theory and the path that Andrew Wiles incessantly followed for EIGHT whole years in order to solve a 360 year old puzzle: There are no solutions to Pythagora's theorem for powers higher than 2! Sounds simple? Wait until you see the demonstration.

Fascinating account for a less known part of the Jewish history and the story of The Arch of the Covenant. Hancock traces the possible routes that the Arch could have been carried along, after its mysterious dissapearance from the temple of Solomon. Guaranteed to keep you awake as the author tries to unveil some of the most well kept secrets in history. Brilliantly logical in the presentation and at the same time exciting and intriguing narration.
A must for all history and mystery lovers and an excellent begining for those who want to continue exploring the nearly mythical world of the Knight Templars.
