    Review quote
    I have recently purchased a copy of your study mates book 'Understanding Maths' and just want to say thank you, it has really helped me. In fact, i wish i could have got a copy 20 years ago. I already fell my understanding of maths has gone up expotentially. I plan on buying the Algebra book when i am finished with this one. Thanks again. James
