For anyone sitting in a restaurant while attempting to calculate the tip, this book is the answer. For anyone working on a fairly complicated equation and discovering that the batteries in the calculator are dead, this book is the answer. Michael A. Stelzer's Mental Mathematics is a boon for all those people who need to do mathematical calculations quickly and accurately...in their head.
In Mental Mathematics, Stelzer shares techniques that have amazed for two decades. Using his system, it is not only possible to work out solutions in the mind, but to do so in less time (and with greater speed) than most people need when using a calculator. What's required? Nothing more than a sound knowledge of mathematics and a desire to calculate quickly, effortlessly and accurately. The process is based on logic: break down the problem into manageable components and then restructure those components to form the solution.
Michael Stelzer understands how the brain works. After developing a program in which he taught himself to speak French, German and Mandarin Chinese, he wrote Learn a Language Your Own Way, an explanation of his straightforward, logical system for self-taught languages.
Mental Mathematics takes the challenge and the fear out of using math in everyday situations. From the most basic calculations to the most advanced, Mental Mathematics adds up to one important book.
Author Michael Stelzer holds a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering. He has distinguished himself in martial arts, bodybuilding and fencing. A Navy veteran, he holds novice certification in several languages. He is the National Champion of the American Martial Arts alliance 2005 in traditional forms, is a member of the U.S. Fencing Association, and has won medals in numerous bodybuilding competitions. Mental Mathematics is Michael Stelzer's third book.
