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 Gardnerwho respectively proved that anyone can have fun preparing fancy food and doing real mathematicsyou'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 thoughtproviding parallels between two fields not often considered in the same mouthful."Colm Mulcahy, author of Mathematical Card Magic: FiftyTwo New Effects  
Tesla: Inventor of the Electrical Age W. Bernard Carlson "[An] assiduous, endlessly patient biography. . . . In Carlson's eyes, Tesla's relationship with modernity in all its formsits fixation with progress and explanation, capital and connection, but also its fragmentation of narrative and selfis more complex and revealing than even the conspiracy nuts have imagined."Richard Barnett, London Review of Books

"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 familiarthe fourcolor 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 waysas 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  
"Mathematics without Apologies: Portrait of a Problematic Vocation Michael Harris "Michael Harris opens the doors and gently guides you into a magic world. Once inside, you can't help but feel mesmerized, eager to see how deep the rabbit hole goes. And no wonder: a major thinker of our time is talking to you about math and so much more, like you've never heard before."Edward Frenkel, author of Love and Math: The Heart of Hidden Reality
