I'm not entirely sure what's worse- the fact that this book only solved one real problem (after a tedious discussion about what it means for a number to be positive or negative and even or odd), or that it, a book championing itself as a book about algebra, didn't even solve this problem algebraically.

I saw this on the free eBook list, and being a math teacher, had to download it. I was little skeptical at first because the title isn't that great, but I really enjoyed reading this "math lesson". It was easy to understand and put in terms that kids could understand, though I highly doubt this would get any uninterested people interested in math.

This was a free kindle book that solves one math problem and is a shameless plug for his book on algebra. The book was ok.

Sort of humorous, and not very surprising for a middle school math teacher (sort of kills the "big reveal"). A fun topic to explore, though, especially if you don't already know what's coming.

Clever, but it seemed more like a sample than a book.
