"When I first saw the table of contents, I quickly realized that this book was definitely in a league of its own. This book does a great job of breaking down complex mathematical concepts into manageable chunks of relevant information that can be applied immediately. In addition, the author provides many examples for the reader to understand how to apply the information to his or her own professional practice. This is a great resource for individuals who are interested in high school and college level math. While I do tutor high school and college students, I would have loved to see how this information could be applied to middle school math. Overall, this book was definitely a pleasure to read to help me with my clients this upcoming fall."
