Secrets of Mental Math: The Mathemagician's Guide to Lightning Calculation and Amazing Mental Math Tricks
|Buy From Amazon|
I recently watched a mind melting maths demonstration on the fantastic TED website.
This talk was by a chap called Arthur Benjamin who is not only a gifted academic mathematician but also inspires others with a profound insight into out mind’s capabilities.
Check out his video here, at the time of writing it’s already had over 5 million views:
Arthur Benjamin: A performance of “Mathemagic”
So inspired was I that I immediately sought out his book so that I could learn the secrets,
The premise of the book is to teach us all how to do lightening quick calculations in our heads, dramatically improve our memory for numbers and perhaps even make maths fun! It’s just a shame that we aren’t all taught like this from the outset, so if you know anyone who enjoys maths or solving mental problems then this will make an ideal gift for them.
Why they'll love it:
Anyone with a vague interest in mental arithmatic will find this book fascinating, not only does it help you get to grips with numbers in a way that you most likely have never before but it’s actually pretty cool to be able to use these tricks with your friends to give the impression you are a gifted maths genius. The truth is anyone can get to grips with the concepts of this book and they’ll love the mental work out that accompanies it.Wondering what other buyers thought of this gift idea?
