"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

"The Best Writing on Mathematics 2014 Edited by Mircea Pitici Praise for previous editions:"[A] volume of unexpectedly fascinating mathematical research, musings, and studies that explore subjects from art to medicine. . . . [R]eaders from many disciplines will find much to pique their interest."Publishers Weekly  
"Mathematicians under the Nazis Sanford L. Segal "The strength of the book lies in its many individual stories and case histories. . . . [It] offer[s] disturbing and important accounts of the life of science and scientists under the Nazis."The Economist

Alan Turing's Systems of Logic: The Princeton Thesis Edited and introduced by Andrew W. Appel "This book presents the story of Turing's work at Princeton University and includes a facsimile of his doctoral dissertation, 'Systems of Logic Based on Ordinals,' which he completed in 1936. The author includes a detailed history of Turing's work in computer science and the attempts to ground the field in formal logic."Mathematics Teacher

Biomolecular Feedback Systems Domitilla Del Vecchio & Richard M. Murray "This is an excellent compendium of the most important techniques and results in the application of feedback and control to biomolecular systems. Biomolecular Feedback Systems is very timely, and a mustread for students and researchers."Ernesto Estrada, University of Strathclyde  
How to Solve It: A New Aspect of Mathematical Method G. Polya With a foreword by John Conway "Every prospective teacher should read it. In particular, graduate students will find it invaluable. The traditional mathematics professor who reads a paper before one of the Mathematical Societies might also learn something from the book: 'He writes a, he says b, he means c; but it should be d.' "E. T. Bell, Mathematical Monthly
