I have the previous version of this book. I think it is so good that when I saw this new edition I decided that I should write a review. This book takes the reader up to about what used to be O level standard, GCSE I guess it is now? All the topics are well explained and with a little application the content is within the grasp of all. I have other maths books that seem to delight in explaining with simple examples and then presenting more difficult exercises, this book never does this. My copy of this book is now falling apart with use. It inspired me to move on and get into A level maths, more complicated algebra and calculus. So for this I am very thankful.
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.

I have always hated the maths in school. I thought I am simply too dumb to understand it. When I turned 30 I though, let re-visit the subject, just for fun... I have purchased this book for about six pounds, read it from first page to last. And now I am in the first year of doing degree in Physics.
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.

Whilst it is impossible to have a single complete book on Maths, the title does imply a scope that is much greater than that offered. Those readers who will be able to cope with the whole book will find the first few chapters desperately slow and simple. They take up a fair size of the book that could have been given over to other topics. Besides, what role does the sister Teach-Yourself book on Basic Maths have to play if many beginner concepts are supplied here?

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 bought the kindle edition so I could fill-in the gaps in my maths skills thus keep-up with my son's homework. The content is good with clear explanations and lots of examples; however, some of the formulae, especially those with indices, are represented as tiny graphics on the Kindle screen which are too small to read clearly and can't be zoomed-in. The text-sizing facility doesn't make any difference. Formulae are also often badly positioned with regards to standard text. Apart from that, it's a good book which does what it says on the cover. I have no hesitation in recommending the paper version, but not the Kindle version.

When I started this book I found it to be very useful. As you get further into it and things start getting more complicated, you could find yourself wanting to pull your hair out. Each section has exercises for you to do, with the answers in the back. That is all it gives you though, answers with no guidance of that answer. So you have to figure out yourself how these conclusions came about. This also happens through chapters, 1 minute you understand and the next something crops up and you go WHAT! For instance chapter on directed numbers. A question like this happens. ' An addition like 4+(-1) has to be written in a different form before you can apply this method. These three simple additions can be used to introduce the different form. 4+2=6. 4+1=5. 4+0=4. '. Excuse me!!! Where did those come from, they explain to me nothing about the original problem, and the writer most certainly does not explain. I guess because they know math, they seem to not want to explain these things which may be easy for them, but we seem to need powers of reading their minds. This book is good to an extent in the beginning, however too many of the same kind of non explaination continues throughout the book.

Having received this book within 2 days on the Amazon free delivery, I eagerly went straight into reading the Book, From the basics of Matamatics to slightly more complicated Maths, this book has a great way of teaching you in an easy "Janet & John" language, a God send from the days when teaching Maths at school was not only boring, but also coming out of lessons with the same blank look on your face you went in with.
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.
