Unfortunately, this audiobook is basicallly worthless. It only cost ~$2 but I want it back. 45 minutes = short. 70 tips include using rounding to truncate off decimals and 80 is very close to 79. Says that the Internet is a good resource. It sounds like this is someone's "post-college" try to make a little money writing a "booklet".
These breezy-short lectures are severely lacking in depth. The writer, Scotto, lacks vocabulary and does not demonstrate a knowledge-base to warrant serious consideration. Casual listeners only. The item description suggests the author is fluent in many mathematical tricks of trade. That, he is not. He is after your 1.98 to induce the buyer into purchasing three or four of 45 minute packages. He falls back on fad language, as a 5th string fad guru.
"much talk of helpful shortcuts without sharing any"
I thought this book would help my mental arithmetic. It suggests ask a friend. Really.
