A refreshing alternative to the often incoherent texts of the new new math. This book clearly delineates the progression from counting to basic calculus functions. An excellent choice for the adult learner, and I can't help but think that it would've been a boon to me while struggling with mathematics in high school.

Pretty awesome book -- straightforward and clear all the way through. He starts with simple counting, and builds on that through addition, then multiplication, and then all the way through to calculus, in 100 pages. Excellent. Best math book I've read.

This book was OK, but most of it was elementary maths. Calculus was left for the last 10% or so. Also, I am not sure I would have understood it if I hadn't already been familiar with the topics.

“Mathematics consists of processes independent of the number. You must remove the number from your thinking and instead dwell on the idea and process of the underlying logic. The faster you do this, the quicker math will begin to make sense to you. Then maybe your life, but defiantly your grade, will get better.” 0 likes
