Number theory has been instrumental in introducing many of the most distinguished mathematicians, past and present, to the charms and mysteries of mathematical research. The purpose of this simple little guide will have been achieved if it should lead some of its readers to appreciate why the properties of numbers can be so fascinating. It would be better still if it would induce you to try to find some number relations of your own; new curiosities devised by young people turn up every year. In any case, you will become familiar with some of the special mathematical concepts and methods used in number theory and will be prepared to embark upon the study of the more advanced books in its rich literature.
