Not everyone will agree on what makes a mathematics book a "classic." Perhaps it is more accurate to say this is a list of books that among my personal favorites and which I think have stood the test of time in terms of either the quality/interest of their content or presentation.

Coxeter, H.M.S., Introduction to Geometry, Wiley, New York, 1969.

Luce, D. and H. Raiffa, Games and Decisions, Wiley, NY, 1957.

Stein, S., Mathematics: The Man Made Universe, W.H. Freeman, San Franciso,1963. (This book has been reprinted by Dover Publications.)

Straffin, P., Game Theory and Strategy, MAA, Washington, 1993.
