    Great tips and shortcuts for everyday life math for the not-so-mathy types.

    I'm a bit of a math freak, so while I picked up a couple new shortcuts, there wasn't all that much in this for me.
    HOWEVER, after reading it, I knew it was just what my husband might need (he's that guy who always turns a little pink with embarassment as he hands me the restaraunt check, so I can figure the tip for him.)

    He's taking it one thing at a time, and practicing what he learned for awhile after each chapter, so he's only a couple chapers in, but for the first time, all those same tricks I tried to teach him are finally starting to make sense to him, and stick!

    Well done, Ms Laing. Well done!

    9/54 is _____ % ?

    Answer: 17% here is how you do it: first you divide 9 by 54 and get .166666666666666......... . Then you round that to 17.
    I did that without the book. Have not bought it. This is from an 11 yr old 5th grader. Does the book tell you how to do that? In an easier way?

    Not good

    Did not like this book at all. It did not meet my expectations. I work with everyday business math and was unable to follow the book. Perhaps you can!

    Could Have Been Better!

    This book by author Laura Laing was okay but not exactly what I was looking for. It's useful though. I'm still awful at math and some point will take a second look.
