What a fun book, that is if you enjoy thinking, enjoy math, and the thrill of solving a problem. This book provides eighty word problems, in which you much utilize some basic algebraic functions to solve. Upon getting this book, I immediately delved right in, and easily "conquered" the first few problems. Feeling pretty confident and even smug, I started working some of the more challenging problems, and quickly realized that there are some very challenging, thought provoking problems here. I worked through them and must say that they take many twists and turns, requiring creative problem solving skills. I found the book very interesting and challenged my level of math skills. Successfully solving these problems resulted in satisfaction and increased my ability to think, I am sure of it! As is stated in the book itself, some knowledge of algebra and equations is needed, so if you possess those skills, I would highly recommend this book and all of the challenges it holds. Answer's are provided in the back of the book It will not disappoint, as you will be busy with it for hours!
I teach a Financial Principles course and plan to incorporate this type of word problem into the class.
