Talk about math books in general, discuss your favorites, review some.

Discuss about math education in the U.S or in whatever your country is.

Let me start, my favorite math book is College Algebra by Murray R. Spiegel (from Schaum's outline series). It is the most complete book in terms of exercises and detailed solutions, I just love it. smile

About math education, I heard there is (or was recently) a crisis in the US, and that Danica Mckellar's books were a response to it, to help it, and also to diminish the gender gap in math. Here's her first book:

What do you think?
