Story
Math is not only the game of numbers but also the language of nature. As a matter of fact, it has been established through research that the more we understand our universe, the more we discover interesting mathematical connections. For instance, flowers have spirals that are carefully lined up in a special sequence of numbers commonly referred to as Fibonacci numbers. This sequence can be studied, understood, and generated.

The author scopes out the project to assure the listener that this is not as challenging as they may fear. He states that there are only 13 punctuation marks in English, and only three are truly troublesome: the sentence bridges which include the comma, colon, and semicolon. As the author suggests, you should focus on the tracks that really matter, the sentence bridges, and give less attention to the other 10.

Both have reputations for complexity. But the basic ideas behind them are, in fact, simple and comprehensible by anyone. These dynamic and illuminating lectures begin with a brief overview of theories of physical reality starting with Aristotle and culminating in Newtonian or "classical" physics.

Not Useful!
Would you try another book from Jason Scotts and/or Kirk Hanley?
No
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
No
Any additional comments?
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 "postcollege" try to make a little money writing a "booklet".

Severely lacking
These breezyshort lectures are severely lacking in depth. The writer, Scotto, lacks vocabulary and does not demonstrate a knowledgebase 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.
