Not a bad overview of the subject, but there's nothing there to make it remotely interesting either. I would have liked to have seen more of a historical view, with the sorts of situations that called for the development of trig, and not just more word problems for their own sake. Calculating how big an emu pen can be made from a given length of fencing is a poor demonstration of the mathematics that allowed people to build pyramids and navigate the open ocean, at least in my opinion.

Sure, I might sound like a geek, okay? But trust me, when I hear Trigonometry, I am literally paralyzed. Not anymore! When I got this book, it was much easier to understand. Okay, this book may not count because it isn't Literature, but I think it was useful. Now, I understand sin, cosine, tan, co-tangent and so much more. (Also check out Pre-Calculus and Calculus for Dummies.)

Gotta say I hate trig. But this book really helps you out. Some of the people saying it didn't work probably could have done with getting the Algebra II edition as well. It doesn't matter how good the book is if you stink at math.
Please be sure to read this book bcs really perfect masterpiece... And five stars from me ,,,,
