    Some interesting insights: A percentage increase followed by the same percentage decrease does not leave you where you started; it leaves you worse off. Take care to only round the numbers after making any calculations. It makes a difference. A straight line between two points on a chart can conceal a winding path between them.

    A really good book to get an overview. Years and years of school in a couple of hundred pages.

    The book started off being quite basic, but then it introduced more financial maths and decision making skills which were greatly helpful for me who had no experience in finance. I shall be using it until I familiarize myself with the terms.

    This is a very brief overview. It could help someone to remember some of the basics, but I’m not sure it will help someone not familiar with these concepts. I wouldn’t recommend this book

    A really good guide through all the mathematics you will need in normal business life. The writing is even a bit entertaining in parts. The only problem that I found was that you are really easily lost between the methods you already know (skimmed through them) and the ones you do not know (read obviously with more intensity)

    This is a book that covers basic math concepts, statistics and decision making maths. While it does a great job explaining fundamental arithmetics, algebra and statistics, when it covers decision making maths, it feels too condensed. I would have loved more examples and applications. It contains a useful A-Z dictionary and a good index.

    Highly recommended, based what I've read so far. I'm not a quant jock, but this covers all the gaps I needed to fill.
