©2011 Quck and Dirty Tips (P)2011 Macmillan Audio
This was a fantastic book. My kids 10, 12, 14 who have been on a "we hate math" phase for a while have actually enjoyed the book. Jason keeps it light and humorous, while still conveying the basic tips in an easily understandable way. As my daughter said, "it's easy when HE explained it"
Improves math by practice basic equations and helps to retain information. Author starts with basic skills and then presents real scenarios to help you use everyday math computations.
Very happy with this book, it totally changed my way of calculating maths problems manually
This was a very easy to grasp set of tips for practical, everyday math usage, especially for those who are not mathematically inclined. The author and narrator did an excellent job getting these ideas across. He was encouraging and pleasant to listen to. I would definely purchase some more of his materials. At $.95, this was a steal.

For the price, this was an excellent book.
The 5 tips were given as promised and thanks to Jason Marshall for providing this book at such a realistic price.
The concepts were easy to grasp and enjoyable to do.
I can confidently recommend this book to anyone wishing to improve their mathematics skills.
the voice was very friendly and easy to listen too. will try and get grandkids to listen to audible.

He really knows what he is talking about because he is not just talking but doing it
Do two things:
One. Put in title a very clear indication that the book is for humanists, beginners, people who never did mental math, and that it gives you very basics. Make sure if an engineering grad reads the title he would skip over it and not even think of buying it.
Two. Remove all the 'inspirational speech' bullshit, stupid real world analogies, and stop repeating yourself multiple times, like you're practicing hypnosis. This is practical tech. stuff, it's not religion, nor philosophy, nor a hypnotherapy session.
I've listened to 35 mins of the book, that's 64% (couldn't handle more), it were probably the most unproductive 35 mins I had in years. Supersimple stuff delivered super slowly. I had answers a second or two after the author was finishing reading his example.
Two stars instead of one, because I think the book may be still (marginally) useful for people with non-technical degrees, or for children. Although it still has good deal of dangerous 'inspirational speech' type of brainwashing.
