Archimedes' Revenge by Paul Hoffman
It's been a few years since I read this but it made a good impression on me at the time and a few of the sections (on voting paradoxes, cryptography and topology, particularly the role it played in the side effects of thalidomide). I'm not sure how well the computer science section holds up, but it's definitely worth a look.
