Excellent but need PDF

This is an excellent Audio Program by my beloved Doc. Art.

Only thing missing is the PDF book. please vote for my idea up so Professor Arthurjreleases the PDF. Math need reading and doing some practice. the PDF can include practice questions and quizzes to improve learning and a summary for the mental tricks taught in the audio book.

Please vote for my idea up. i was waiting for this book for a long time.

appreciate u guys..

Fun to listen to!

I love numbers and love playing with them. This audiobook teaches how to do mental math with almost no work. I listened to it in my car and was able to understand and learn what Art Benjamin explained. I recommend it for people who think that numbers are difficult to deal with and also for others who like me, want to have fun doing calculations without the use of a calculator. There are fun little tricks to do difficult calculations like 3 digit by 3 digit additions, multiplications and divisions. The last chapter is a lot of fun; Art teaches how to do simple "tricks" using numbers. I wish he would show more of those!

Very easy to listen to and a lot of fun.
