Brandenburg's Recommended Math Books (1 May 2015)
Looking for more good reads? Check out Guy Brandenburg's book list, organized into math and science sub-topics, and annotated with capsule reviews and reading level ratings. During his 30+ years of teaching math in the public schools of Washington, DC, Brandenburg used to assign his 8th and 9th grade algebra and geometry students to read two of these books each year, and then write reports on them.
