It’s the twenties and it is time for the Chalkdust Magazine Book of the Year award. One maths book that was published in 2020 will be joining Kit Yates’s The Maths of Life and Death by receiving this prestigious award. Additionally, there will be a chance for you, our readers, to vote for your favourite.
- The Wonder Book of Geometry by David Acheson
- Molly and the Mathematical Mystery by Eugenia Cheng and Aleksandra Artymowska
- Mathematical Adventures! by Ioanna Georgiou and Asuka Young
- How to Make the World Add Up by Tim Harford
- Hello Numbers! What Can You Do? by Edmund Harriss, Houston Hughes and Brian Rea
- Why Study Mathematics? by Vicky Neale

These books are all very good, but we can only pick one winner of the prize. Over the course of the next few weeks, we will be posting reviews of each of these books, including notes relating to our four judging criteria—style, control, damage, and aggression—then on Monday 15 March, we will be announcing the winner of the Chalkdust Magazine Book of the Year 2020, plus the winner of our readers’ vote.
The readers’ vote will open after we post the final review, so get reading now so you know who to vote for…
