Corrente Reads Books!
We read books: let's review them here! Leave your reviews in the comments.
A few weeks ago vastleft asked for recommendations of artist biographies or memoirs. What I'm working on today is one of those. Perhaps you've read a biography or autobiography of an artist (or scientist, for that matter) which incorporates information about how they approach their work?
We've also had a request for books about the history of Fermat's Last Theorem. I gave my suggestion here. If you've read this or any of the other books for nonmathematicians that have been written about this, let us know what you thought.
Housekeeping note: I'm changing the title of my Sunday book review posts so as not to create confusion with the posts of my esteemed colleague Truth Partisan who originated the Sunday Morning Book Review series here. I took the title idea "Correente Reads Books" from CD's comment "Corrente: the blog of people who read actual books! without pictures or flashy spinning graphics, even! wow." (And thanks for the great link in that post, CD!)
But before I make the change retroactive: do people think that title is no good, does it need the word "Sunday" in it, does it lead to confusion with some other series somewhere, or do you just plain have a better idea?
My review to follow...
