My son had lost confidence in maths, so I decided to put some fun back into it - without being patronising. These books are fantastically intelligent,
approachable, fun - and have great attitude. My son has taken to reading them at bedtime in place of his normal reading book and also loves the
puzzles and brain teasers inside.

The material is well structured and well laid out. It is interesting for readers but the range of topics/area of maths covered is vast so not sure who the book is aimed at.
BEWARE - this book and The Essential Arithmetricks are exactly the same book with different titles. I bought both!!

I ordered this for my 6th grade daughter who has always struggled in math. She has labeled herself "not a math person, at all!" She actually picked this book on her own and started reading it! It helped her to see math in a whole new way.
