Ten books that sum me up

Just for a change, I thought I’d make a list of books that I feel sum me up, as I see myself.  I leave it to others to guess why I chose them!  This can also be a fun activity for teaching too, using the idea of “Ten ___ that sum me up”. Get students to write their lists anonymously, then distribute and try to find the person…

In no particular order, but there are ten of them (as required by the activity!):

  1. The Wee Book of Calvin
  2. Music and the Mind
  3. Gödel, Escher, Bach – an Eternal Golden Braid
  4. The Crest of the Peacock: The Non-European Roots of Mathematics
  5. Principes de la Flûte traversière, ou flûte d’Allemagne; de la flûte à bec, ou flûte douce; et du haut-bois, Divisez par Traitez. Par Sieur Hotteterre-le-Romain, Flûte de la Chambre du Roy
  6. The Bumper Book of Bunny Suicides
  7. Klingon
  8. Barbershop Arranging Manual
  9. Use Your Head
  10. The Republic

Now, who would you be?
