Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm looking for some light reading for this summer after my exams, and came across this book called "Zombies and Calculus"... looks brilliant. Just want to know if anyone has read it, or any other good math books out there for light reading.

I'm a big fan of mixing STEM subjects with topics youth are interested in.

Absolutely, I do a bit of tutoring on the side every now and again, and i find even being really enthusiastic and positive about the subject, especially on a one to one basis can really help. I listened to a brilliant podcast with the author of this book, here is the link.
