Steven Strogatz’s The calculus of friendship

This is a gem!! The book is short; but I savoured each chapter for a few of days. With wonderful sketches by Strogatz’s teacher, interesting mathematics and with the intertwining of the personal life of the teacher and the student, it is such a pleasure to read. The subtitle of the book is “What a teacher and student learned about life while corresponding about math”. The readers will learn about both life and math — by reading this correspondence! Strongly recommended — even if you are not keen on maths.
