I’m thrilled to announce the print edition of *Math, Better Explained* is available on Amazon:

With the magic of print-on-demand, you can order the book with overnight shipping (Amazon Prime!), and be reading full-color insights tomorrow. Yowza.

I’ve often been asked if a print version can be made, and I’m beaming to say it’s now a reality:

- 12 chapters (~100 pages) of full-color explanations
- Professional-quality typesetting & layout
- Gorgeous, high-resolution text and diagrams
- Compact, easy-to-carry size with comfortable margins (7″ x 10″)

The best part? There’s no garish marketing fluff needed by traditional books that compete for shelf space (testimonials, callouts, those can go in the Amazon description!). The book is my take on a simple, friendly presentation of the math essentials. It’s what I wish I had in high school (and college, and afterwards), and a tremendous value for the time and frustration it will save you.

Unlike a textbook you’re afraid to open, this book is meant to be accessible. Years later, flip back to that diagram that helped imaginary numbers click. Show that curious young student how the Pythagorean theorem goes way beyond triangles. Math is meant to be seen and felt, not just thought about.

The full-color format does increase the printing costs, but I wanted to share the highest-quality version I could (hey, I’m a reader too!). The introductory price (under \$20) is heavily discounted and will change soon, so grab your copy today!

As always, happy math.

**PS:** Reviews are sincerely appreciated, and if you’re a math reviewer (or willing to be one!), contact me and I’ll get a copy your way. Thanks for your support!

mark ptakJune 1, 2013 at 7:17 amIf you are a parent, a student, or a formal teacher you must buy this book. Really…you must. The textbooks and websites will come and go but if introduced to your high school student early it will open up a whole new world that only those with the most insightful of teachers are ever exposed.

kalidJune 2, 2013 at 6:14 pmThanks for the support Mark — I’m happy to say the book got up to #660 overall on Amazon, and #7 overall in math! :)

MSJune 3, 2013 at 1:17 pmI got mine! Actually, I just ordered mine. Looking forward to reading it..

Matthew PickeringJune 24, 2013 at 4:13 pmThis is an excellent book. Actually for a deep understanding of the topics presented it is quite exceptional. I purchased this for my 12 year old son (math enthusiast) as I wished I had access to this when I was at school. A great feature of the book and website is discussion on how concepts (e.g. negative numbers, imaginary numbers etc.) emerged in history. In many cases this is a powerful approach to begin to reveal the intuition and one which I incorporate in my (medical and science) teaching. Well done and thank you Kalid.

KalidJune 24, 2013 at 7:36 pm@MS: Thanks!

@Matthew: Really appreciate the thoughtful comments. My goal was to share the book I wish I could have read when entering high school / college, really happy that resonated with you! Exactly, we often have to look at the history of an idea to figure out why it’s so useful. Teaching it in a vacuum, without any context, is not a great way to get a deep understanding. Appreciate the note!
