Book Description

Hi! Secret Agent Impala the Koala here (or, as my Soviet handlers call me, Vlad the Impala. It’s a long story).

Secret Agent Beveridge has, very carelessly, left a copy of a top-secret document on his computer with the title “Glorious Resolution of Forces In Equilibrium” which seems to show how to go about resolving forces – just like you might need to do in your Mechanics 1 (M1) AS-level module.

It takes you through the five secret steps the wonderful Soviet education system mandates for solving this kind of question – where you have a bundle of forces acting on an object and have to figure out the value of some of them. I reckon it’ll save you hours of time on your homework, and help you pick up a few more points in the exam. It’s dynamite, I tell you.

Now, he’s going to be furious with me when he discovers I’m letting you have this, so you’d better get hold of it before he finds out and takes it down!

Your money will go directly to my “Get Impala Out Of The Gulags” emergency legal fund – I’m going to be for the high jump when Beveridge finds out!

More About the Author

Colin Beveridge (1977-) is a maths confidence coach for Flying Colours Maths and co-author of the Little Algebra Book.

He holds a PhD in Mathematics from the University of St Andrews and worked for several years on NASA's Living With A Star project at Montana State University, where he came up with an equation which is named after him. It's used to help save the world from being destroyed by solar flares. So far so good.

He became tired of the glamour of academia and returned to the UK to concentrate on helping students come to terms with maths and show that not all mathematicians are boring nerds; some are exciting, relatively well-adjusted nerds.

Colin lives in Dorset with an espresso pot, several guitars and nothing to prove.

Clearly, the previous commenter didn't actually read Glorious Resolution, or didn't get the humour. Unfortunately, I can't comment on the maths involved because I'm not up to this level, but I thought the writing style was hilarious... and who couldn't use a few laughs with their studies? More, please!

1.0 out of 5 stars do NOT waste money on this... 19 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The only thing worse than your logic is your manners. I have snipped away most of your of what you wrote, because, well ... it didn't really say anything. Maybe later in life, after you have learned to read, write, spell, and count, you will have more success. True, these are rudimentary skills that many of us "normal" people take for granted that everyone has an easy time of mastering.

But we sometimes forget that there are "challenged" persons in this world who find these things to be difficult. If I had known that this was true in your case then I would have never have exposed myself to what you wrote. It just wouldn't have been "right." Sort of like parking in a handicap space. I wish you the best of luck in the emotional, and social struggles that seem to be placing such a demand on you.
