I have the whole Easy way series. Sometimes, when a concept is new you want to approach it from an oblique. I literally went from being mystified in a few classes to being a straight A math student. That was 1992-1994. Twenty years later, as a transportation planner, I work with statistical analysis, trig, and concepts from both integral and differential calculus regularly. These made that possible. The books tell a kids fantasy story of a traveler who washes up on the shore of an unfamiliar land, and walks through the process of understanding the problems they need to solve. As an adult, I still find the characters and stories amusing and a relief from the ridiculously thick and boring textbooks companies are cranking out now. And yes. I did just fine on all the tests, and  developed an understanding and appreciation for mathematics that drives my career today.

I work in Finance. I sing and dance Algebra. I offered to tutor a friend in Algebra. My friend brought me this book to structure his learning. I just read the first chapter. What a disaster. How much garbage do you have to read through to get to the point? And the story has no real practical application. This is the Barney, the friendly purple dinosaur, of Algebra books. I would rather be on the Dr. Phil show with everyone who ever thought I needed counseling than read another chapter of this book. Just because the cover screams, "Two thumbs up!" or "Best Algebra book I ever read!" don't let it fool you. Save your money and move on.

I bought this book to refresh my high school math skills when going back to college. I spent more time on line trying to find examples. This books tells stories between a professor and wizard to teach you math. If you dig that sort of thing and don't need step by step instructions on how to learn math skills long forgotten, then this book is for you.

Maybe it was my mistake for not investigating this book a little more before I got, but this book is for kids. And beyond that there aren't nearly enough examples. It was written as a supplement to a high school Algebra class. If you want some hard core refresher material press back on our browser now and look for something else. The first of the chapters are so simple you could puke, and then tossed the book from a moving vehical. I'm going to buy Algebra Dymystified and I suggest you do the same.
