Lover of math. Bad at drawing.

%d bloggers like this:

I thought the sine book pleasant but derivative of the -cosine work.

And the sequel, “A 400-page trigonometric expression that eventually simplifies to 0”.

A lovely addition to any mantle.

You really need “Unfinished Business” by Kurt Gödel

And don’t overlook “The Proof is in the Pudding”, by Gaspard Blanc Monge

Genius 🙂

The book I’m waiting to get is “Mathematics With Bad Drawings” by Ben Orlin (Forward by Bill Watterson).

Definitely!

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”

Love, absolutely LOVE that.

You gonna write it?

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!!!
