Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
This book is easy to understand and well written. I also contains an interesting chapter on pseudo-science and how to detect that.

I really learned a lot with this book. The authors are talking in the first person which I liked a lot. And the tricks are easy to learn and entertaining to practise.
Plus there are stories of mathemagicians and it was interesting.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beware of duplication 10 juillet 2007
Par Anthony Galvin - Publié sur
I bought a copy of Secrets of Mental Maths. As a trained scientist and a professional magician I was interested in the contents, and was not disappointed. Great stuff here for impressing people, and useful techniques for making maths fun. However the Amazon website offered two books togehter - this book and another by the same authors; Think Like A Maths Genius. I ordered both, and was shocked when they were delivered. The second book (Think Like A Maths Genius) was just Secrets of Mental Maths with a different cover. Amazon should have known both were the same book and should not have offered them both together. Don't be caught out by this. That aside, I highly recommend buying one or other version of this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great for SAT/GRE study! 25 septembre 2007
Par Zach Foreman - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
I am a professional SAT/GRE teacher and tutor, achieving an 800 in the GRE math section. After telling many students that the secret to the math section is mental math and approximation, I decided to see what books were available. I saw that this one had good reviews and ever since then I have been bringing the book to all my classes and tutoring sessions. I recommend this book for those who never felt they got the hang of math as well as people who love it like I do. It is clearly written, very encouraging and has lots of drills.
I love this book and I think that it really will help people feel more confident when they take a test or just are trying to figure the tip.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Right to the point, effective, and fun! 11 octobre 2006
Par Robert Potter - Publié sur
At first glance, this book could easily be overlooked and dismissed as another "just buy this book and follow my easy steps to becoming a (genius, millionaire, happier person, psychic, master gardener, whatever)" that would utimately leave you disappointed that you couldn't do it.

Well, this book is not that. It gets right to the point. It's very well written. It's fun. It's practical. And as long as you take your time to mentally practice what you're learning along the way, you can and should be able to master the techniques in this book. You needn't have any mathematical expertise going in. Of course, the author doesn't promise anything special about what you can do with these abilities, although there are some practical applications suggested along the way. All I can say is that it's fun and gives you something interesting to do with your brain when you're bored. And certainly if you like Math already or are a Math teacher, it can be tremendously helpful.

Arthur Benjamin wrote the main content of the book, and Michael Shermer (Skeptic Magazine founder and Scientific American columnist) wrote introductory and closing chapters. These seem a little out of place to me, but they're certainly very good and useful general information about critical thinking. In addition to Bill Nye's (The Science Guy) new intro, James Randi's (famous magician and skeptic) introduction from an earlier edition is included.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good book, but watch out for the typos 13 décembre 2009
Par Fritillary Lil - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat authentifié par Amazon
I bought this book in its Kindle version for my PC. I am enjoying it, and happy to see progress in my ability to perform mental calculations. Math was never my strong suit, so this is just what I need.
My only negative comment is that the publisher needs to more carefully edit the text. I came upon three typos within the first couple of chapters, and these were errors in operations signs (for example, "+" instead of "x").

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Book But Kindle Version Needs Improvement 13 octobre 2010
Par Twiggy - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
I have bought a number of different books like this to find different ways to help my 14 year old who struggles with arithmetic and is falling behind in school as a consequence. I find this to be the best of them because it has all of the techniques found in other books in one place. The light hearted presentation is really great and the author really helps by suggesting ways to think e.g. How to talk in your head. More importantly, the techniques appeal to my kid and he is making progress.

My only beef is with the kindle edition. No hyperlinks between exercises and corresponding answers plus the examples are presented as images so they don't increase in size when you choose a different text size for reading. I think Kindle editions should take steps to exploit the different medium and not just replicate the hardcopy. You can zoom in on those images but it is cumbersome. If you don't absolutely need the ebook I recommend choosing the hardcopy version. On a positive note the kindle edition does not appear to be plagued with copious spelling errors like so many other titles.
