I recently got an email from Chad Lillian with the following request:
I was wondering if you could recommend some books for me about mathematical and scientific history that would be interesting for my 10 year old son to read (or for me to read with him)? I have looked through your book reviews, but am wondering if there are any books you haven’t reviewed on your blog, but would recommend?
Now I don’t have and never have had children and I also don’t teach children so I am basically the wrong person to answer this question. Can people recommend suitable, preferably myth free, books on the histories of mathematics and science for Chad? make your suggestions in the comments!
