About the Author


Simon Singh received his Ph.D. in particle physics from the University of Cambridge. A former BBC producer, he directed the BAFTA Award winning documentary film "Fermat's Last Theorem" and wrote "Fermat's Enigma," the bestselling book on the same subject. His bestseller "The Code Book" was the basis for the BBC series "The Science of Secrecy." His third book, "Big Bang," was also a bestseller, and "Trick or Treatment: The Undeniable Facts About Alternative Medicine," written with Edzard Ernst, gained widespread attention. Singh lives in London."
