When I was 11 years old I went to high school and started Algebra. A couple of weeks after the beginning of the school term I was sick, and missed about 3 days' classes, and must have missed something vital, because I never managed to catch up. In maths exams I did well in geometry, was mediocre in arthmetic and trigonometry (mainly because of careless mistakes) but very poor in algebra. So when I saw this book in the library, I thought it might be an opportunity to see what I had missed.

As someone who missed the whole algebra thing at school due to reasons I always wanted to go cover algebra. This book is so well written and the liberal use of humour in the book really helps things not get bogged down too much. There were times I did need to go to the internet to find some videos on some concepts (I guess I’m a visual leaner), but I’m not going to let that bring down such a great book.
