Good Math: a geek’s guide to the beauty of numbers, logic, and computation
by Mark C. Chu-Carroll, John Osborn

My score: 7/10

Good Math was an inspiration for me to look at mathematical concepts from a completely different perspective.

It’s easy to forget that mathematics is one of the most important foundations of computer science. It was considerations of a mathematical nature that led people like Alan Turing to lay the foundations of computers, programming languages, the Internet, etc.

The Good Math book is a fantastic compendium of knowledge about mathematics in the context of computer science. It shows its remarkable history and evolution, proving that computer science is not only programming languages and computers but also a full-fledged field of science.
