Hi,

I was wondering what introductory book to Number Theory for self study would you recommend? I don't need one that is too streched, just one that will give me a flavor of number theory.

Thanks in advance!

I am not sure what you exactly mean by that. But what i am looking for is something that will give me a general idea of what number theory is about. Something that is not too difficult to follow, but rigorous at the same time; that is almost 100% proof based.

I am not sure what exactly would be the difference between "introductory as in undergrads level " and "just for some exposure".
