Math Books reviewed and classified by area of mathematics

It is with great pleasure that I announce something that we have been working on for a while. We just published a Math Books page, containing what we consider to be some of the best books on various areas of mathematics.

The list is not exhaustive by any stretch, capping at a total of 52 books so far, but it covers recommendations for 20ish different areas of mathematics. The focus is on outstanding introductory texts, with a few must-have math references thrown in here and there. We’ve briefly reviewed each of these math books in order to provide you with a general idea of its style and content.

Of course, not everyone will agree with the way we opted to divide the field of mathematics, nor will they necessarily agree with every selection we made. But it’s impossible to please everyone or be exhaustive in every way. We are confident that most readers will agree with us and recognize at least a few classic and well regarded books.

A lot of work went into the making of this page, as such we hope that it will serve you well, help you discover new and interesting titles, as well as act as a wish list of sorts.

Finally, this list of book reviews has been published with my name of it, but it was a collaborative effort. A special thanks goes to my friends Jonathan, Mary, Marco, Paolo, Alex and David for their research and review contributions.

May this list inspire and further guide you in the pursuit of mathematics.
