Street Fighting Mathematics – Book Review

Streetfighting with Mathematics

This book gives examples of educated guessing and approximation methods to evaluate functions, or to get information on functions that are too hard to evaluate. Recommended for mathematicians only. The engineer in me found this interesting.

You will need some understanding of Calculus and Physics to make the most of the book. There is also a course on by the same name. People can also take that.

This book builds a fair amount of mathematical intuition. The tone of the book is conversational. This book helps you get to a rough estimate of an answer sooner. Book is thin, just 150+ pages, as for mathematics standards.

You don’t need to read this book all at once. Every time you take a glance at a section, you might stumble upon some remarkable insight that can help you in many contexts.
