MAA Reviews is your one-stop-shop for information on mathematics books: what has been published, what is good, what the MAA recommends for library acquisition. Every week we post eight new reviews of books related to mathematics, so we now have several thousand reviews on the site. In addition, we list thousands of other books.
You will find on this site a large database of mathematics books. For all books we receive we present the publication information, an image of the cover, and (whenever possible) the table of contents. We include reviews for as many books as possible.
To find older (and newer) reviews and pages for non-reviewed books, you can either use the Browse function or use the search box that appears at the top right of every page. You can limit the search to MAA Reviews by adding type:book to your search. The search engine allows multiple search terms and strings in quotes. The advanced search makes it easier to add such restrictions.
We would love to have you participate, for example by volunteering to review books yourself or by contributing your own comments.
The site also hosts the MAA’s recommendations for library acquisition. Whenever you open the page for a book that has been recommended for libraries to purchase by the MAA’s Basic Library List Committee, you will see a note telling you that and indicating the strength of their recommendation, from “BLL” to “BLL***”.
