Description
Even if you don't secretly count on your fingers or find using a calculator to be a hit-or-miss proposition, this math book for the non-mathematical grown-up is so full of handy shortcuts (some of which your grandparents used), evocative visualizations, and examples of right and wrong calculations that you're bound to discover a number of "a-ha!" moments here. In a light, entertaining style, the book can enable you to tally a tip without a calculator, quickly determine a discount on a marked price, improve your chances of winning at cards, double a recipe, or figure out how much paint you'll need to cover a wall.
