>> I originally sent this to mathlearn on 2/7... but good books are timeless  so I'd appreciate your feedback from anyone who has read them >> >> ps. to listmaster: do you have any idea why this message did not get to the group ? I received no error reply from my mailer...   
I just bought this one yesterday :
"Where Mathematics Comes From: How The Embodied Mind Brings Mathematics into Being"
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0465037704/qid=981568159/sr=11/ref=s c_b_1/10726127454381361
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 http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/069100515X/qid=981568382/sr=17/ref=s c_b_7/10726127454381361
"Duelling Idiots and Other Probability Puzzlers" by Paul Nahin http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0691009791/ref=sim_books/1072612745 4381361
"Conned Again, Watson!: Cautionary Tales of Logic, Math, and Probability" by Colin Bruce http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0738203459/ref=sim_books/1072612745 4381361
"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"  ?)) http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0465016189/qid=981568712/sr=11/ref=s c_b_1/10726127454381361
