From the Publisher
"[F]or anyone who wants to peer into the financial concepts that surround our daily lives and learn to make better decisions, this book will help you immeasurably."
The Montgomery Journal
"[S]uperbly user friendly and well conceived."
"You Can Do the Math: Overcome Your Math Phobia and Make Better Financial is the user-friendly guide to helping you understand even the simplest math concepts to apply to your everyday life and make sound financial decisions….We would like to extend our congratulations to Lipsman and cross our fingers that his book will reach the New York Time's Best Sellers List soon."
King Farm Chronicle
"Drawing on his life's experiences and many years as a classroom teacher, Lipsman presents an easy-to-read introduction to the mathematics of personal finance. . . . An excellent companion Web site (http://www.math.umd.edu/~rll/cgi-bin/finance.html) provides a series of problem-solving engines to perform the calculations for those who are less experienced in mathematics. Although oriented toward the personal finance neophyte, even those with more sophistication in financial decision making will find the book and the Web site an interesting and useful reference. This work can also serve as an excellent refresher or supplemental resource to traditional texts on the subject. Highly recommended. General readers; all levels of undergraduates; practitioners."
"Ron Lipsman guides readers along a charming walk through life, with an entertaining yet factual explanation of the mathematics encountered along the way….Although this is not a textbook, it is a very good mathematical financial guide for any upper-level high school student through adult and would be a good reference book for your library."
