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.

This is brilliant, for someone who has taken very little university math and is self-teaching, this is a phenomenal resource.

I would include:

“Convex Optimization” by Boyd and Vendenberghe

How about a list reviewing free ebooks on Maths for those of us that can’t afford the publishers list prices.

Great selection! would recommend the book on Algorithms to the students I tutor because in other math books, algorithms get very little coverage.

Thanks. This list is very good and helpful. Liked the comments on books.

Do check out this one as well for pre-calculus math,

Challenge and Thrill of Pre-college Mathematics, by V. Krishnamurthy and other authors.

Thanks for the great list on Math books.

I know some of the authors are also programmers by profession. It would be better if a recommended list on Theoretical Computer Science or Information Technology is also provided.
