## Main Question or Discussion Point

Dear Physics Forum advisers,

Could you recommend me some brief, introductory books on the number theory I can read for few weeks before jumping into the analytic number theory? Big part of my near-future research project will involve a lot of the analytic number theory, so it is needed to read books like Iwaniec and Davenport. Unfortunately, I am not quite familiar with the basic number theory, so I thought it would be wise to seek your recommendation. Unfortunately, my advisers learned the NT from algebraic and analytic aspects, so they are not familiar with the general introduction.
