64 Amazing Math Books You Should Read in 2022

Hey, math people! The University of Cambridge prepared a unique list of math books you should read in 2022.

This list of interesting math books you should read is mainly intended for sixth-formers planning to take a degree in mathematics. However, everyone who likes mathematics should look at some very suitable items for less experienced readers, and even the most hardened mathematician will probably find something new here.

What are the most useful math books you should read?

The range of mathematics books now available is enormous. This list contains a few suggestions that you should find helpful. They are divided into three groups: historical and general which aim to give a broad idea of the scope and development of the subject; recreational, from problem books which aim to keep your brain working, to technical books, which give you insight into a specific area of mathematics and include mathematical discussion; and textbooks which cover a topic in advanced mathematics of the kind that you will encounter in your first year at university.

"A wonderful collection of ninety-two photographic portraits of some of the greatest mathematicians of all time can be seen in Mathematicians. The beautiful photos by renowned photographer Mariana Cook are supplemented by concise autobiographical prose written by each mathematician. Cook portrays the vivacious and colorful personalities of these outstanding thinkers. Together, the images and text portray a broad collection of...
Sofya Vasilievna Kovalevskaya, a professor of mathematics at the University of Stockholm, published her memories of growing up in Russia in the middle of the nineteenth century in the year 1889. Professor Kovalevskaya was already well-known on a global scale, albeit perhaps not for the reasons she should have been: less as the accomplished mathematician she was than as a...
"One of the brightest scientific minds of the contemporary era was Paul Dirac. His prediction of antimatter was one of the greatest achievements in the history of physics, and he was one of Einstein's most esteemed colleagues. He also contributed to the discovery of quantum mechanics. He was the youngest theorist to ever receive the Physics Nobel Prize in 1933....
This book is meant to assist candidates in getting ready for admission exams in math and science, including STEP (Sixth Term Examination Paper). The Cambridge colleges base their conditional offers on the STEP exam. Warwick University also uses them, and many other mathematics departments advise their applicants to prepare for the previous exams even if they decide not to take...
"Stephen Hawking's book, a major work of scientific literature by one of the greatest brains of our time, tackles such important issues as How did the universe begin—and what made its start possible? Does time move ahead at all times? Does the universe have limits, or is it infinite? Does space have any further dimensions? What will occur when all...
"Martin Gardner is solely responsible for the development of the field of "recreational mathematics," whether he is talking about hexaflexagons, number theory, Klein bottles, or the meaning of "nothing." The most well-known essays from Gardner's illustrious "Mathematical Games" column, which appeared in Scientific American for twenty-five years, are collected in The Colossal Book of Mathematics. Inspiring readers to look beyond...
"The astonishing national bestseller that "buzzes with energy, story, and life" is one of our most well-known science books. It nearly inspires you to pursue a career in physics (Science Digest). The Nobel laureate in physics Richard P. Feynman loved daring escapades. In this engaging book that "can shatter the stereotype of the stuffy scientist" (Detroit Free Press), Feynman describes...
"This book's goal is to carefully but untechnically illustrate the distinctions between high-level, research-level mathematics and the kind of mathematics we learn in school. Readers of this book will leave with a deeper grasp of seemingly counterintuitive ideas like infinity, curved space, and imaginary numbers since the most fundamental distinctions are philosophical. The opening chapters discuss general facets of mathematical...
