If you are one of those people who view arithmetic with the same confusion as attempting a DIY job without instructions, this is the book for you. The explanations and examples are detailed yet easy to follow in a very reader-friendly way. It should be in every home as a reference book.

Brian Fletcher initially trained as a Research Physicist, eventually specializing in Vacuum Physics and the accurate measurement of extremely low pressures. Much of his work has been presented to International Scientific Conferences and published in Scientific Journals. Two new developments were the subject of British patents. After working for 18 years in this field he retrained as a Mathematics Teacher. He went on to teach all aspects of Pure and Applied Mathematics up to University entrance level in both State and Public schools. Brian has always believed that mathematical principles and concepts, at whatever level, should and can be taught in a way that excites and encourages students. All his pupils have benefited from this philosophy; many have gone on to achieve success way beyond their initial expectations.
During the 5 years leading up to retirement a further career shift involved teaching Information Technology to adults.
He is now living with his wife and dog in a small village in Wiltshire and is a Governor of the local primary school.
