**The Beckenbach Book Prize**, formerly known as the Mathematical Association of America Book Prize, is awarded to authors of distinguished, innovative books that have been published by the Mathematical Association of America (MAA).^{[1]} The prize, named in honor of Edwin F. Beckenbach, was established in 1983 and first awarded in 1985. The award is $2500 for the honored author and is awarded on an irregular basis. In January 1985 Charles Robert Hadlock was awarded the MAA Book Prize,^{[2]} which later in 1985 became the Beckenbach Book Prize.
