I have been the SIGACT NEWS Book Review Column Editor
for a while now. Every issue I have a list of books
that I WANT reviewed. This works pretty well, but I recently
thought
if only I had a way to let LOTS of people know the list
of books I want reviewed. That might work better.
Until I do, here is the current list of books I want reviewed.
If you want to review one of them then email me by Thursday Oct 22
(I will be sending in the column, including a hopefully shortened
version of this list, on Oct 23.)
You email should include your postal address so I'll know where to
send the book. If you are in America I will postal mail you the book,
if you are in a different country I will try to get the publisher
to send you the book (this works most of the time).

The fourth edition of Proofs from the Book is now published and there is five new chapters. I would be glad to have some review of the new material
ReplyDeleteMore like 52 books that I just plain want.
ReplyDeleteShould one be an expert in a field in order to review a book from that field?
ReplyDeleteYou can send me one as a christmas present Bill :P
ReplyDeleteWhich books are good for which levels? For example, which books on this list are good for new graduate students in theory to review? Any?
