Author:AK Whitney
Description: "One woman's attempt to revisit the math that plagued her." Whitney enrolled in the subject 25 years after high school, where she "barely passed algebra and actually flunked geometry and calculus." Writing with candor and self-doubt ("This is the beginning of my quest to see whether I really suck at math.... Can I do it? Or am I just a mathochist?"), the California journalist chronicles her adventures as an adult learner of mathematics at her neighborhood community college in outposts such as "Calling in the experts," "Accentuate the negative," and "Getting fractious."
