Buy @jajoosam a book.

List of gifted books

Hi, I'm Samarth - a 17 year old highschooler, and maker of things 🛠️

I enjoy all kinds of books! If you're trying to get me one - it'd be very difficult for you to go wrong. That said, I'm currently very interested in books:

  • about economics
  • which tell stories with math
  • which are an introduction to big themes

There's more about me on sam.jajoo.fun, and feel free to ping me on twitter.

You can buy books for Samarth from their wishlist below, or pick another book yourself.

The Art of Problem Solving, Volume 1

Sandor Lehoczky, Richard Rusczyk

AoPS textbooks are the best ones I've read - instead of pushing information from the top, you're given a set of questions to solve using techniques you know already - and then they show you neater, cooler methods to solve them!

A Culture of Growth

Joel Mokyr

I'm learning more about progress, and heard about this book from @f_mccullough!

The Mamba Mentality

Kobe Bryant

Kobe was a G. Never watched him live during a game but been trying the fadeaway forever. RIP 🙏

Understanding Comics

Scott McCloud

Another recommendation from @visakanv

Fermat's Last Theorem

Simon Singh

I read "The Code Book" from Simon Singh a few years ago, and really enjoyed it. Came across this, and had to add it here!
