Engaging, Entertaining, & Educational

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"

Just Get It

It's tragic to think of all the mental pain and agony, not to mention time, that would have been spared if only I would have learned this 25 years ago.

too brief

too brief to be of any real value to someone who wants to learn how to do this. A commercial to buy the real book

Math tips everyone can use!

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.

Won't be tricked into buying another "Math Dude"

This is so bacis that It's not worth purchasing at all. It's something you learn in 1st or 2nd grade. If it wasn't so cheap I'd ask for my money back. Truly a money making scam. The math dude obviously wants quick cash.

Good tips for young and old

When trying to help my kids with maths I soon realised how quickly I'd forgotten some of the basics. There can be a stigma with older generations relearning basic maths, but I swallowed my pride and dove back in. This has some basic but useful techniques. Even if you have the skills yourself it can help pass that knowledge on to your kids.

Useful to refresh your memory.

Also, the narrator has refined his style; expect to be fairly engaged. Three words remaining.

I enjoyed it

It was interesting to me to be honest, but it’s only simple examples of adding and multiplying

too basic for most people.

nothing wrong except not much help unless you are REALLY stuck with very simple stuff.
