This review is from: The Calculus Diaries: How Math Can Help You Lose Weight, Win in Vegas, and Survive a Zombie Apocalypse (Paperback)
This will teach you about as much math and possibly less than you learned from watching Numbers. It has some interesting bits of trivia but is neither diary enough nor calculus enough to be interesting on either front. This is an entirely self-indulgent gee look at me kind of book which an editor worth his or her salt should have stopped in its tracks. If you have already learned a little calculus then it has nothing for you. If you have not already learned calculus it doesn't have enough of an explanation even conceptually for you to follow. Sorry I bought it. IF editors are to have any role in the coming world it should be stopping this kind of book from wasting people's money, by telling authors to revise or simply refusing to print such a weak effort.
