Does math intimidate you? Don’t panic! The good news is that just a handful of central ideas and techniques can carry you a very long way. So, I am pleased to present this book: a no-nonsense guide to the essentials of the subject, especially written for anyone who ‘was never any good at mathematics’.

Complete with quizzes in each chapter, this book gives you all the tools to become proficient in different areas of math.

It’s perfect for getting parents up to speed fast in order to help their children with homework, or compete in the workplace.

Review

'Elwes takes the key concepts, perfectly illustrates them with practical examples and easy-to-follow explanations, tests us with quizzes, and applies the principles to everyday situations. The effect is strangely liberating, and you might soon find yourself acquiring a love of logarithms and a respect for reflex quadrilaterals' Good Book Guide. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Restore your math-confidence March 16 2012
By Ds N. J. Prinsloo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The author has a real gift for conveying mathematical concepts in a concise, easy-to-understand way. I had vague memories of high school math which never failed to fill me with dread. Now I feel confident with fractions, algebraic equations and basic trigonometry (I got sin, cos and tan - remember them? - in one page). A great read if you want to brush up on everyday math.
