I ran across these recently and thought there may be some of interest:
This looks very interesting in that it explores various parts of mathematics but not in a numbing sort of way.
The Norm Chronicles: Stories and Numbers About Danger and Death Michael Blastland and David Spiegelhalter
This book explores the dangers and risks that we take on everyday. I have purchased this and I will report on it in the future.
The author explores how the Jesuits attempted to control a mathematical theory and the founding of calculus.
Indonesia Etc: Exploring The Improbable Nation Elizabeth Pisani
I find Indonesia fascinating for some unknown reason in that with so many islands and seemingly different cultures, the appeal for me to understand it, even though I will most likely never go there, I want to know more about it. The above sentence is probably the most dangling thing I have ever read.
Malthus: The Life And Legacies Of An Untimely Prophet Robert J. Mayhew
I am interested in this man for the impact that he has had on our world with his thoughts on population growth and this book attempts to answer the misunderstandings that we have on his theories.
