I wish there was a way I could personally meet Danica McKellar and thank her for what her amazing and easy to understand math books have done for me. I've always felt stupid when it came to mathematics; the kind of mental break I've always had were just debilitating whenever I looked at an equation. Even in college, I'd cry tears of anger and frustration wondering, "What the heck is everyone seeing that I just can't grasp?!" All of that changed when, one year ago, I picked up "MATH DOESN'T SUCK". I am 30 years old now. Believe me, thanks to instructors like Ms. McKellar who truly care that their pupils understand mathematics and make it their own, I finally understand middle school mathematics. I purchased "KISS MY MATH" and waited like a caged animal for "HOT X: ALGEBRA" outside of Barnes & Noble. I feel more confident, excited about this new world I feel has finally opened up to me, all because, like myself, Ms. McKellar is fed up with young girls the world over (especially in the United States) are made to feel that brains depreciates beauty, instead of knowing that the truth is the reverse. BRAVO, Danica McKellar, BRAVO!!! Keep your math books coming!! Should I have a daughter someday, your books will be waiting for her.

I have all three of Danica's books, and I would recommend this to Algebra students everywhere! It's very helpful. I am also excited to hear that she is working on her fourth book, a Geometry one, out August 2!

I just love these books! They are so helpful and filled with great advice. I love the author's message- that being smart doesn't mean being a dork. I would recommend these books to any girl, even if she isn't struggling with math. They are fun to read, and make math concepts easy to understand. I really found some of the tips very helpful. A must read for sure!

I would recommend this to Algebra students everywhere! It's more than helpful, it makes Algebra easy and clears up what the math teacher tried to teach, but failed.

We are very excited to be buying your third book, Hot X. You have such a way with words and keeping things simple yet yielding the optimum result: understanding. We ony wish that you could do a book on Geometry, trigonometry, etc. In other words, keep going!!
