My mother has asked me to choose anything of my liking for my birthday present. I want to get some good book on interesting maths. Will you please suggest me some of the books which I can buy and enjoy? P.S:I do not want traditional schoolbooks. But if u could tell me inspirational books which will help me explore the beauty of math and make me wonder, I will be grateful.
