Designed to help students understand the applications of mathematics, this work begins by discussing math anxiety and strategies for dealing with this handicap. Next, hints for reading math problems and problem solving skills are discussed. Further ideas for dealing with problems involving pi, exponentials, equalities, etc. are also included. The book is rounded out with real-world math examples from social science, biology, economics, and business. An eye-opening and non-threatening look at the world of mathematics, this should be useful for students, educators, and adults. Joanne Troutner, Tippecanoe School Corp., Lafayette, Ind.

The title seemed to indicate that was the perfect text for someone who had successfully avoided math in high school, but now, many years, later was confronted with reality.
But much to our surprise this book only made things worse, much worse.
I'm the math geek in the family, so I could appreciate the spirit in which the book was attempted. The author does try to make things transparent by discussing the fundamental principals/logic behind topics as Pi, the seemingly magic ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter.
But the execution is a classic exercise in an "expert" talking over the head of the reader. Unwarranted assumptions abound. Multiple concepts are packed into single passages. The text must be painstakingly read and unpacked word for word.
