"Assuming only what every mathematically inclined freshman should know, this book leads the reader to an understanding of one of the most important conjectures in current number theory--whose proof is one of the Clay Mathematics Institute's million-dollar prize problems. The book is carefully and clearly written, and can be recommended without hesitation."-- Peter Swinnerton-Dyer, University of Cambridge

"The Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer Conjecture is one of the great insights in number theory from the twentieth century, and Ash and Gross write with care and a clear love of the subject. Elliptic Tales will have wide appeal."-- Peter Sarnak, Princeton University

Very pleasantly surprised by this book. I never expected it to be as entertaining as it was.

As with most Margolin books this is a real page turner involving one of his heroines, Amanda Jaffe. Worth a read.
