This book is evidently conceived as a companion to the author's previous work, On the Shoulders of Giants (2003). God Created the Integers is not for the curious layman or the average mathematics student. The overwhelming bulk of the text is devoted to excerpts from the published works of the mathematicians under consideration.
The title of the book is a reference to a quotation attributed to mathematician Leopold Kronecker, who once wrote that "God made the integers; all else is the work of ma.
It also helps them understand the progression of mathematical thought, and the very foundations of our present-day technologies. Each chapter begins with a biography of the featured mathematician, clearly explaining the significance of the result, followed by the full proof of the work, reproduced from the original publication.
