You really need “Unfinished Business” by Kurt Gödel
And don’t overlook “The Proof is in the Pudding”, by Gaspard Blanc Monge
The book I’m waiting to get is “Mathematics With Bad Drawings” by Ben Orlin (Forward by Bill Watterson).
Heavenly book of prefect proofs exists: http://www.amazon.com/Proofs-THE-BOOK-Martin-Aigner/dp/3642008550
This one may be your best yet! (And a book of Math with Bad Drawings is an excellent idea!)
“The Subtitle of This Book is True…But the Title is False”

I “bags” editing it! 😆
The Hyperwebster by Ian Stewart.
1 Million random digits is a classic.
Some of the reviews of that book had me in absolute hysterics
Oh my God…. So true and funny!!!
