I am quintessentially stubborn. Never give up. (Pain is temporary, quitting is forever. ) I have purchased books on Algebra and Geometry; I won't lie to you, my struggle continues. The "Secrets of Mental Math" however is fun AND practical. It should be this much fun for everyone.
I read it over once without actually practicing any of the tricks having purchased it on Amazon for my Kindle library. I liked it so much I went to used book stores to find a hard copy. If math and magic intrigues you, you should get this book.
