Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions (Dover Thrift Editions)

Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions - Banesh Hoffmann, Edwin A. Abbott This is a freaky-cool mathematics fantsy about a line in love with a point. Well, there's more to it than that, but I think that sentence alone is enough to give you an idea of what sort of book Flatland is. If you know a kid (or adult) who likes math, likes to think about math, geometery, or other weird nerdy/cool things like that, then you need to give that person "Flatland". Also: if you read this on the "T" in Boston, you are likely to strike up interesting conversations with strangers.
