The Proof and the Pudding: What Mathematicians, Cooks, and You Have in Common<br>Jim Henle The Proof and the Pudding:
What Mathematicians, Cooks, and You Have in Common
Jim Henle

"If you're a fan of Julia Child or Martin Gardner--who respectively proved that anyone can have fun preparing fancy food and doing real mathematics--you'll enjoy this playful yet passionate romp from Jim Henle. It's stuffed with tasty treats and ingenious ideas for further explorations, both in the kitchen and with pencil and paper, and draws many thought-providing parallels between two fields not often considered in the same mouthful."--Colm Mulcahy, author of Mathematical Card Magic: Fifty-Two New Effects

The Fascinating World of Graph Theory<br>Arthur Benjamin, Gary Chartrand & Ping Zhang "The Fascinating World of Graph Theory
Arthur Benjamin, Gary Chartrand & Ping Zhang

"In this attractive introduction to the world of graphs, the authors entice and enthuse readers through a number of fun problems which present various aspects of the subject. Many of these problems are familiar--the four-color problem, the Königsberg Bridge problem, and 'instant insanity'--while others are less well known or of a more serious nature. This book can be used in different ways--as an entertaining book on recreational mathematics or as an accessible textbook on graph theory. I warmly recommend it."--Robin J. Wilson, author of Introduction to Graph Theory
