    Silly and fun

    The book is set up to teach Trig by telling a story. While no one can claim the story is interesting, it does help propel the reader forward in learning the subject matter. It was nice to see some of the mathematical theory set up to be applied in a real world situation. The examples using friction, velocity vectors and tree height stick out the most in my mind. There are plenty of example problems to help the reader apply what was learned with answers in the back to verify the work. In my opinion, this is a great tool to use in conjunction with a trig class and a pretty good tool to learn trig on your own.

    I'm older than 12..

    I thought this book might be interesting since it came with a story about Trig, however after reading about 10 pages I could not stand it any longer. It did not really help in my understanding, but this could be due to the silly story.
