Hi Folks,

Amazon.com has just sent me information about the following book that I
thought people might be interested in.

"God Created the Integers: The Mathematical Breakthroughs That Changed
History", Stephen Hawking, Price : $19.77

Book Description:
"Bestselling author and physicist Stephen Hawking explores the
"masterpieces" of mathematics, 25 landmarks spanning 2,500 years and
representing the work of 15 mathematicians, including Augustin Cauchy,
Bernard Riemann, and Alan Turing. This extensive anthology allows
readers to peer into the mind of genius by providing them with excerpts
from the original mathematical proofs and results. It also helps them
understand the progression of mathematical thought, and the very
foundations of our present-day technologies. Each chapter begins with a
biography of the featured mathematician, clearly explaining the
significance of the result, followed by the full proof of the work,
reproduced from the original publication."
