As a math teacher I am always interested in new books, I have currently finished "The Joy of X" and "The Code Book" and found them extremely interesting. What books have you read, that involves mathematics?

"Proofs from the Book" Volume 1 (and 2). Some of the mathematical ideas are hard, and the book presents a very clear exposition that illustrates the important approaches used to solve the problems.

I recently read "Chaos" by James Gleick. It was really readable, had good diagrams, and lots of recent history with the math.

"Through Genius the Great Theorems of Mathematics" by Dunham is a great read.
