albstein,
It doesn't have to be fiction.  It can be anything. I'll let you rethink your list, if you like, to include any you may have left out.

I will add your suggs, Dan, but maybe you could post a link to an IMDb image of that could be used?  (I'm having an image of everyone's #1 book, so a picture of a math problem?)  :)  Thank you!

Abi,

Thank you for the recommendation. This sounds like an interesting read, probably on par with Gravitation.

Abi,

I reviewed the table of contents of Computational Complexity: A Modern Approach 1st Edition. It looks fascinating.

Out of curiosity, is your background primarily Computer Science or Mathematics? My background is primarily Computer Science with a focus on Numerical Analysis and Operations Analysis.

After rereading, Tom Holt's absurdly funny, mind-breaker Doughnut, Narnia... can you swap out Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury for Doughnut, Tom Holt?

Some mathematicians cannot distinguish a doughnut from a coffee cup with one handle. Topologically, they are the same.

A tokamak is a device used for nuclear fusion. Tokamak is a Russian word for torus or doughnut.

My own list has a book of haiku by Ricard Wright. A book that personally helped me get through some of the worst times of my life.
