TYB Books -- Basic Math (Page 1) R-Z

TYB Books -- Main Page

These are, as the title says, basic books on math.  These are books for people who are afraid of math, and also books on math without the math--on the general principles, puzzles, broad outlines without equations.  Stuff for casual reading for math lovers, and books for mathematically illiterate to get over their phobia.  Know of any good books that I should have here that aren't?  Please let me know so I can add them.  Incidentally, these are alpha by title.

Oh, btw, if you aren't interested in browsing the list, some browsers are equipped with a function from the menu that allows you to search the entire page for a keyword.  Try it.
