Editorial Reviews

Review

`Review from previous edition Mathematicians of all kinds will find the book pleasant and stimulating reading, and even experts on the theory of numbers will find that the authors have something new to say on many of the topics they have selected... Each chapter is a model of clear exposition, and the notes at the ends of the chapters, with the references and suggestions for further reading, are invaluable.' Nature

`This fascinating book... gives a full, vivid and exciting account of its subject, as far as this can be done without using too much advanced theory.' Mathematical Gazette

`...an important reference work... which is certain to continue its long and successful life...' Mathematical Reviews

`...remains invaluable as a first course on the subject, and as a source of food for thought for anyone wishing to strike out on his own.' Matyc Journal

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 5, 2019
Greetings ... I recently visit England as well a member of my family that when I was a teenager order and purchase the Fifth Edition you can see in the Picture. This was before I enter to study Math in UCV, Caracas to then move to Italy and again get another degree.
The Hardy book ... new Edition is good while I do not yet conquer ... but now has an Analytical Index (Good) ... but do not include in full ... seems neither partially explanations which Ramanujan cover like square and triangular numbers. This invite me to a new purchase ... "In the Spirit of Ramanujan" ...

Without to disturb you too much ... there are another Mathematics ... Indeed there are Infinite Mathematics while the Duodecimal or Math of Spirit ... is the most important and in this "Egyptian" not new Math ... all puzzles get solutions.

Thanks for any person worked to produce the Sixth Edition.
