There is also a list of books which are not recommended. These are by authors featured elsewhere on the site or deal with topics mentioned here. There will not be many of them, and they are here because I don't want to be accused of ignoring opposing points of view and, as people are going to buy them, I rather like the irony of the situation anyway.
200% Of Nothing : An Eye-Opening Tour Through the Twists and Turns of Math Abuse and Innumeracy by A. K. Dewdney.

This guide to the absurdities of some mathematical claims helps to level the playing field.
