Review: Secrets of Mental Math: The Mathemagician's Guide to Lightning Calculation and Amazing Math Tricks
User Review  Justin Bustamante  GoodreadsEasy read with lots of helpful hints. The methods are easy to remember so what is harder to to is "unlearn" the way we were taught to do math. So fun and easy, almost to easy. I often double and triple check myself before I really believe math with large numbers can be so easy. Read full review
