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.

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.
