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=1-1/ref=s
c_b_1/107-2612745-4381361

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=1-7/ref=s
c_b_7/107-2612745-4381361

"Duelling Idiots and Other Probability Puzzlers" by Paul Nahin

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0691009791/ref=sim_books/107-2612745-
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/107-2612745-
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" - ?))
