  • The Last Theorem

  • A Novel
  • By: Arthur C. Clarke, Frederik Pohl
  • Narrated by: Mark Bramhall
  • Length: 12 hrs and 36 mins
  • Unabridged
  • Overall
    4 out of 5 stars 288
  • Performance
    4.5 out of 5 stars 182
  • Story
    4 out of 5 stars 182

The historic collaboration between Frederik Pohl and Arthur C. Clarke is both a momentous literary event and a fittingly grand farewell from the great visionary author of 2001: A Space Odyssey

This is a story of one man's mathematical obsession, a celebration of the human spirit and the scientific method, and an intellectual thriller in which humanity, facing extermination from all-but-omnipotent aliens, must overcome differences of politics and religion and come together or perish.

Very disapointing to a long time Pohl fan

This novel seemed to me more like a very drawn out short story. I have read most of Pohl's novels and none of Clarke's, and am a big Pohl fan, so I have to come to the conclusion that this debacle was more Clarke's doing. In any case, I hope this isn't Pohl's last novel, because I would hate to see such a rich career end on a sour note. I do not recommend this book.

This author taps into the motivation and therefore many of the practices of the stock traders who will be your competitors. If you are new to trading, and specifically if you are interested in day trading, this is the best starting point for you. I actually went through this book 3 times so far. As I apply the principles he lays out in the actual market trading, I go back through with a better understanding of what I leaned in this book, I have picked up many nuances that I had missed the first time around.
