Fear no numbers by Jose Paul Moretto is a quick read that can be of benefit to both math students and teachers. Although the book is short, only 33 pages or 48 if you include the preface and introduction, you will find yourself going over and over the pages to gleam all the knowledge contained within. While Mr. Moretto's book may not hold the cure to all math phobias, the information held within its pages will relieve many anxieties. The main focus, of this helpful book, are the two theorem known as the proof of 9 system and the maXima system that can be used to check the answer of any multiplication or division problem. Some of the other information that can be gleamed out of this magnificent book includes a magical property of 9 that was first discovered by the ancient Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras. The best thing Mr. Moretto does in his book is that after explaining these theorem he gives you problems so that you may apply what you have learned. By the time you do the practice problem you should easily use the maXima system to quickly check any multiplication or division answers. I would recommend this book not only for those currently in school or teaching math but to everyone that uses math in their daily lives.

Multiplication & Division Simplified José Paul Moretto presents an old concept in a new way to help students conquer their fear of math. Interesting book with examples. Moretto shows how math can be fun. Great, Great book for students, educators, and anyone wanting to learn more about math.

Jose Paul Moretto is a teacher of the first order.  Simply picking up this colorfully designed book cover, we enter his world of fascination with numbers and especially his concern for the . . . math proficiency in our young people, and allows us access to his system of mathe- matical theorems - The Proof by  9 System and the MaXima System -  and by learning these logical and rather easy to absorb and use techniques, we learn how to simplify large numbers, and a shorter way of solving division problems.  Moretto . . . outlines and demonstrates his theorems and makes them as fun as games.  For every student from pre-teens on up (and yes, that does indeed include the older set confused at times with the disruptive non-human errors encountered in using a calculator) this book will suddenly make the challenge of mathematics into the pleasures of Moretto Math!  Highly recommended!  June 13 - Grady Harp
