I am a science writer and independent museum consultant who is interested in the intersection of art and science. I am also fascinated by the history and philosophy of science. Check this blog for notes and updates about cool art-and-science miscellany.
I recently put out an APB to other science writers on Twitter and LinkedIn, asking for recommendations for good books that explain math for the layman. I have been a math groupie for many years, enjoying books like The Man Who Knew Infinity and The Art of Mathematics. I knew, though, that there must be many more good reads out there in the world. I got some great tips, which I listed below. If you, dear reader, have any other recommendations, please leave a comment.
