The Universe and the Teacup The Universe and the Teacup: The Mathematics of Truth and Beauty by K. C. Cole
. "Pure mathematics," Albert Einstein once remarked, "is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas." In her book The Universe and the Teacup, Los Angeles Times science writer K. C. Cole discusses some of the ways this "poetry" can be used to look at science and other realms of experience. Without relying on a single equation, Cole's gently humorous prose helps make mathematics unthreatening to laypeople, enabling them to better understand the world in which they live. Buy this book

Overcoming Math Anxiety by Sheila Tobias
. The book that made math anxiety a household word when it was originally published in 1978 is here updated to reflect new findings of the last 15 years, including new research demonstrating how little is actually known about sex differences in brain organization and function. Tobias presents strategies for math mental health and explains her view that math anxiety is a political issue and that math competence doesn't have to be determined by gender or class.

Calc I (Bob Miller's Calc for the Clueless) Bob Miller's Calc for the Clueless: Precalc With Trigonometry by Robert Miller, Bob Miller
. The book presents the topics a high school or college student needs as preparation for undertaking calculus, vital topics often poorly understood. They are explained as an encouraging teacher would, in clear, easy-to-understand terms, answering the questions that most often crop up, anticipating students' difficulties and confusions like an experienced teacher, eliminating math anxiety and bridging the "understanding gap" between student and standard text.

A Beginner's Guide to Constructing the Universe A Beginner's Guide to Constructing the Universe: The Mathematical Archetypes of Nature, Art, and Science by Michael S. Schneider
. Schneider, an education writer and computer consultant, combines science, philosophy, art, and common sense to reaffirm what the ancients observed: that a consistent language of geometric design underpins every level of the universe, from atoms to galaxies, cucumbers to cathedrals. He discusses numerical and geometric symbolism through the ages, and concepts such as periodic renewal and resonance. Buy this book

E : The Story of a Number by Eli Maor
. Until about 1975, logarithms were every scientist's best friend. They were the basis of the slide rule that was the totemic wand of the trade, listed in huge books consulted in every library. Then hand-held calculators arrived, and within a few years slide rules were museum pieces. But e remains, the center of the natural logarithmic function and of calculus. Eli Maor's book is the only more or less popular account of the history of this universal constant Buy this book

Innumeracy Innumeracy: Mathematical Illiteracy and Its Consequences by John Allen Paulos
. This is the book that made "innumeracy" a household word, at least in some households. Paulos (mathematics, Temple U.) examines many aspects of popular culture, from stock scams and newspaper psychics to diet and medical claims to demonstrate the popular misperceptions resulting from the inability to deal with large numbers, probability, ratios.
