Mathematical Omnibus: Thirty Lectures on Classic Mathematics
by Dmitry Fuchs, Sergei Tabachnikov
Publisher: American Mathematical Society 2007
Number of pages: 465
This book will be of interest to anyone who likes mathematics, from high school students to accomplished researchers. We do not promise an easy ride: the majority of results are proved, and it will take a considerable effort from the reader to follow the details of the arguments. By this book we hope to make a modest contribution to the continuation of the mathematical culture.

This book is ideal for students who need a little push to get motivated, and also great for scientists and those in the math community that like to be in-the-know on relevant and current topics. Perfect as an accompaniment to any science class.
by Edwin A. Abbot - Seeley and Co.
The book gives some accessible and charming explanations of geometry and physics for the curious non-mathematician. Flatland imagines a two-dimensional world inhabited by sentient geometric shapes who think their planar world is all there is.
by A. N. Whitehead - Williams & Northgate
This distinguished book is an introduction to a series of mathematical concepts, a history of their development, and a concise summary of how today's reader may use them. An expertly written book by a brilliant man, filled with valuable insights.
