'Although this book is not written as a textbook but rather as a work for the general reader, it could certainly be used as a textbook for an undergraduate course in number theory and, in the reviewer's opinion, is far superior for this purpose to any other book in English.' From a review of the first edition in Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society
'… much enjoyable and profitable reading …' L'Enseignement Mathématique
'… the seventh edition of the well-known and charming introduction to number theory … it can be recommended both for independent study and as a reference text for a general mathematical audience.' European Maths Society Journal
