July 15 Living Proof: Stories of Resilience Along the Mathematical Journey - Darryl Yong

Last month, the AMS and MAA published a collection of personal stories entitled "Living Proof: Stories of Resilience Along the Mathematical Journey", edited by Allison K. Henrich, Emille D. Lawrence, Matthew A. Pons, and David G. Taylor.

This free book features an illustrious and diverse set of authors. The stories are organized in four common sections: Part I is about what it feels like when mathematicians encounter difficulties in their work, Part II contains stories of mathematicians struggling to belong in math, Part III is about learning how to persevere through difficulties, and Part IV has stories of how people try to integrate their mathematical identities with the rest of their lives.

This could be a useful resource as you work toward making mathematics a more rehumanizing experience.
