If I had been given the insights provided by this intuitive approach to math as a child it might have changed the direction of my life. Providing a framework which someone can hook the concepts of math and then fill in the details seems, at least for me, the way to to make math “stick” and see the value of learning it.
The one caveat I would add is that it would help if you have had the experience of trying to learn the concepts the traditional (confusing) way first. I never had the pleasure (insert ironic humor) of trying to learn calculus, so I needed to wrap my head are why anyone would need to learn it in the first place, intuitively or not.
That being said, if you are interested in demystifying all those formulas you’ve long since forgotten, I would highly recommend this book.

Azad gets my vote for the world’s best math teacher.

Azad is a genius, at least when it comes to teaching. This books is amazing. If I had teachers like Azad, or even just tutors, when I was growing up, I would have loved math. I discovered Azad and this book looking for resources to help my grand daughter with her math. It hasn’t just helped her, however. This book has kindled an interest in math that I never had before. This man deserves some kind of medal from the president. Or at least our thanks.

Ideal for math enthusiasts and for math/scienceoriented middle/high schoolers

A good and fun book to learn about the intuition behind common math concepts such as logarithm, Euler's number / Napier's constant, Euler's formula, imaginary numbers, and growth rates. If this book is the first serving of these topics, then the reader should be ready to work out calculations on pen and paper to grok the intuition behind the topics. If not, then paying attention should suffice to grok the intuition behind the topics. All of the covered topics are accessible as promised with the exception of Euler's formula being a bit hurried and the language used in growth rates being a bit complex.

This truly is an excellent book

I don't have much more to add that hasn't already been said, but I did want add my rating just to give it another 5 star review. Hopefully, the more 5 star reviews the more the book sells and more people will really understand how all this math stuff actually works.
I hate the rigorous approach to mathematics. My learning style requires an intuitive understanding first and then I can learn the rigorous details that help reinforce and sometimes modify my intuitive understanding. There aren't many books that teach math this way, so Kalid's book should be required reading for any author who wants to teach math using an intuitive approach.
The rigorous approach sucks all the enjoyment out of math. It reminds me of when I was in the Army and drill sergeants could somehow suck the fun out of shooting automatic weapons (well, not ALL the fun).

But I'll never use this once I leave school

Have you ever heard someone say, 'I never used math after I left school.'
Of course they didn't use it. They didn't understand it the first time.
But if they'd been taught the way Kalid's explains math, not only would they understand it so well they could use it all the time, but they'd have fun doing it.
Which Pizza will do a better job of feeding my family, the small and medium, or the large? Pathagorean's theorem to the rescue.
Pathagoras? The triangle thing?
Sure enough. But not by memorizing it, by the insight that comparing circles works by the same rules that comparing triangles do.
Ever thought anyone would give you an intuitive sense of calculus? As Kalid says, "We don't need to be writers to appreciate Shakespeare," and we don't need to be math geniuses to appreciate calculus.
There are lots of great courses that will teach you how to do many things, and they are good for what they do. Yet with most of them I got the sense that each lesson only applied to one very specific situation, usually a situation I would never be in. And there were hundreds of these little rules, each applying only to their own very specific situation.
But Math, Better Explained, is totally different. Kalid only talks about a dozen things. One of them is not a rule at all, just a way of looking at things Another one he spent 2 chapters on because the way I was taught it missed how useful it is. Chapter after chapter he demystifies concepts that most of us had given up on. He makes them so clear that now I can apply them in hundreds of situations, situations I'm in, if not every day, at least several times a month, where I want answers, sometimes exact and sometimes just close enough.
If you ever wanted to master math, I haven't found a faster, nor an easier way.
Wilfredo Pareto is famous for a principle called the 80/20 rule. 80% of the value comes from just 20% of your efforts. And the secret to life is figuring out where those 20% efforts are at.
Kalid has done this one better.
If you want 90% of the value of a complete math education for 1% of the effort (but 200% of the fun), this is the book you want to buy.
If you want to clear the fog around key math concepts, and show your family, your children, your friends, how to understand math, this is the book you want to show them.
And if you are just tired of saying, "Oh, I'm not good with math," and instead want to be good at it, this is the book that you want to have fun reading while mastering all those math concepts.
