How could you resist that title... got a look at it in a local bookstore, felt guilty about pushing all my $$$ to amazon so I bought it there - review pending.

I also have a bunch of others on my wish list... Too many to buy (and read !) so I'd be inerested in hearing other folks reviews of any of these :

"Number" - by Midhat Gazale :: looks like a good history of math with some engaging mathematical content as well Bottom of Form 1

"The Math Gene : How Mathematical Thinking Evolved and Why Numbers are Like Gossip " by Keith Devlin. ( How does this compare to "The Number Sense" and "What Counts" - ?))
