May 2016 Noteworthy Math Books

It’s hard to believe that a month has already passed since April’s edition of this new math book series.

I received good feedback on that first post (elsewhere, not in the comments) and as a result, I have incorporated some of those suggestions in this month’s edition. Namely, I added a descriptive line for each book, and separated them in broad categories.
