Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions is a satirical novella by the English schoolmaster Edwin Abbott Abbott, first published in 1884 by Seeley & Co. of London.. Written pseudonymously by "A Square", the book used the fictional two-dimensional world of Flatland to comment on the hierarchy of Victorian culture, but the novella's more enduring contribution is its examination of dimensions.

The Man Who Loved Only Numbers is a biography of the famous mathematician Paul Erdős written by Paul Hoffman. The book was first published on July 15, 1998, by Hyperion Books as a hardcover edition. A paperback edition appeared in 1999.
In A Mathematician's Apology, G. H. Hardy defined a set of criteria for mathematical beauty. In the book's title, Hardy uses the word "apology" in the sense of a formal justification or defence (as in Plato's Apology of Socrates), not in the sense of a plea for forgiveness.
This is a one-of-a-kind reference for anyone with a serious interest in mathematics. Edited by Timothy Gowers, a recipient of the Fields Medal, it presents nearly two hundred entries, written especially for this book by some of the world's leading mathematicians, that introduce basic mathematical tools and vocabulary; trace the development of ...
As a movie about the schizophrenic mind of John Nash gets set to steal the Oscars, Simon Singh explains why he was one of the greatest mathematicians of the twentieth century. A Beautiful Mind is a film about a mathematician, but it is not a film about mathematics.
Chaos: Making a New Science is a debut non-fiction book by James Gleick that initially introduced the principles and early development of the chaos theory to the public. It was a finalist for the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize in 1987, and was shortlisted for the Science Book Prize in 1989.
Fermat's Last Theorem. In number theory, Fermat's Last Theorem (sometimes called Fermat's conjecture, especially in older texts) states that no three positive integers a, b, and c satisfy the equation an + bn = cn for any integer value of n greater than 2. The cases n = 1 and n = 2 have been known to have infinitely many solutions since antiquity.
Every mathematics student should experience and live this book (Mathematics Magazine) In an age that all solutions should be provided with the least possible effort, this book brings a very important message: mathematics and problem solving in general needs a lot of practice and experience obtained by challenging creative thinking, and certainly not by copying predefined recipes provided by others. Let's hope this classic will remain a source of inspiration for several generations to come.
Innumeracy: Mathematical Illiteracy and its Consequences is a 1988 book by mathematician John Allen Paulos about "innumeracy," a term he embraced to describe the mathematical equivalent of illiteracy: incompetence with numbers rather than words. Innumeracy is a problem with many otherwise educated and knowledgeable people. While many people would be ashamed to admit they are illiterate, there is very little shame in saying "I'm a people person, not a numbers person." Or "I always hated math".
This is an interesting, important, ambitious, and infuriating book, one that deserves both attention and response from the mathematics community. It has many good things to say, and it has the ambition to reshape the debate on the philosophy of mathematics.
The Mathematical Experience (1981) is a book by Philip J. Davis and Reuben Hersh that discusses the practice of modern mathematics from a historical and philosophical perspective. Its first paperback edition won a U.S. National Book Award in Science.

The Emperor's New Mind: Concerning Computers, Minds and The Laws of Physics is a 1989 book by mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose. Penrose argues that human consciousness is non-algorithmic, and thus is not capable of being modeled by a conventional Turing machine, which includes a digital computer.
The Music of the Primes (British subtitle: Why an Unsolved Problem in Mathematics Matters; American subtitle: Searching to Solve the Greatest Mystery in Mathematics) is a 2003 book by Marcus du Sautoy, a professor in mathematics at the University of Oxford, on the history of prime number theory.
Calculus on Manifolds: A Modern Approach to Classical Theorems of Advanced Calculus (1965, ISBN 978-0-8053-9021-6) by Michael Spivak is a brief (146 pp.) monograph on the theory of vector-valued functions of several real variables (f : R n →R m) and differentiable manifolds in Euclidean space.
Requiring little mathematical training and a healthy curiosity, the book presents a user-friendly approach to ideas involving the infinite. readers will discover the main ideas of infinite cardinals and ordinal numbers without experiencing in-depth mathematical rigor.
Try going through some books and choose for yourself, everybody's perception towards engineering mathematics is different. The books used by me were-Advanced Engineering Mathematics by V.P. Mishra; Higher Engineering mathematics by B.S. Grewal; Both of these books are good, have enough examples and are easy to understand.
All "Metamagical Themas" columns are included, as well as seven other pieces. Despite its wide range of topics, Metamagical Themas possesses a strong sense of unity, thanks to the author's painstaking efforts, in the postscripts, to spell out connections, cross-references, and implicit ideas.
