    Thanks for that, the one I'm reading is on Cambridge's list; Game, Set and Math by Ian Stewart and I'd love to read two more books too like Music of Primes by DuSautoy and A mathematicians apology by GH Hardy or From Here to Infinity by Ian Stewart(or similar infinity related book) but I'm struggling with Game Set and Math as it is so I think picking another one let alone two would be a bad idea.

    I might suggest some of Richard Feynman's books they are not directly relevant but very easy to read.
