So if you want to refresh your knowledge after a long time, help your children with homework or just understand the wonder of maths this is a book you should have.
If you lack the total basics in maths because you though 'what is the point in learning this?' then this book is probably the best starting point in your understating of the subject. Of course it will not prepare you for the uni but gives a solid foundation from which you can build up on.
But it deserves 4 stars because it is very clear and tidy with copious exercises (with answers at the end of the book).
Written by two leading Maths Professors, it even offers a proof of Pythagoras's theorem, but an awkward one. There is a much more elegant way to prove this.
But that was an exception to an otherwise consistently well written book, with great little 'insight' asides that offer meaningful tips.
They just needed to be clearer about their intended audience.
I am in my late fifties and I wanted to learn some more Maths to keep my mind active, it will also help with one of my Hobbies Astronomy, It's true that we don't realise how many times a day we need to use Matamatics in every day life, and I have also learnt if " you don't use use it you will loose it" so keep practicing maths and start to enjoy it like I am. Thanks to Trevor Johnson & Hugh Neill for this book I only wish they were around in my day and at my school but it's never to late to learn.
