Let's Make Sense of Algebra

James J. Asher

Everyone who has ever struggled with algebra, especially those convoluted word problems, will enjoy this book. As a bonus, you will be the first to take a look at a brand-new algebra, which is so simple, a child can understand and so powerful, it may replace the traditional algebra we all endured in school. I call it Plato's Algebra and it may be the most exciting discovery in the history of mathematics. Let me know how you like it.. My e-mail address is in the book. James J. Asher
