4.0 out of 5 stars 'Warning: this book contains some extremely vulgar fractions!', 7 Mar 2007
This review is from: The Mean and Vulgar Bits (Murderous Maths) (Paperback)
Each of the books in this series is dedicated to a particular branch of mathematics - in this case, we have fractions and averages.

The colourful, humorous cover opens to 160 pages, split over 11 chapters:

You have been warned
Very vulgar fractions
Blinkin' awkward numbers
The bug buster
Brotherly love and the LCD
The phantom sausage and the wrong button
Deadly decimals
All-out calculator warfare
The mean bits
The terrible test!
Goodbye.....and don't forget to shut the book!

written in a variety of fonts in the usual Kjartan Poskitt entertaining style, e.g.:-

'If you've read a 'Murderous Maths' book called Essential Arithmetricks (Murderous Maths), then you'll already know what vulgar bits are.........The vulgar bits were supposed to have had a few chapters to themselves in the aforementioned book, but they were so badly behaved that they were rounded up and herded off to this maximum security book.'.........

Black and white illustrations/cartoons throughout.

Maths as you have never seen it before!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best yet!, 12 Feb 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Mean and Vulgar Bits (Murderous Maths) (Paperback)
This book is excellent, it tells you how to get rid of those nasty fractions and reduce them to almsot nothing, also giving you an excellent summary of all the averages (there are three!) this book will settle arguments to come for years!

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and Educational!!!, 14 Nov 2007
This review is from: The Mean and Vulgar Bits (Murderous Maths) (Paperback)
This is a humorous, educational and DOESN'T include boring old schoolwork when I say 'educational'. It simply wipes out all the boring old maths that deeps on droning stuff like eg.;the digit 1 is obviously included in 8,971 ... and it is amazing how that voice could go forever without stopping!
The fun and interesting delight will thrill anyone who:

Likes humour
Wants to avoid their brainjuice squeezed right out of them in a tricky and complicated test or exam.
Is ready to HAVE FUN!!!

And that's about it! I do hope you enjoy reading this book!
