“It’s a great book! I hope math. faculty will take advantage of having a book available that combines the cognitive and affective combined approaches to teaching math.”

*Joan Totten* * Ferris State University *

“This is the book that I wish I had 35 years ago when I first started teaching math. The book neatly packages ideas, strategies, and tools in a way that readers understand, accept, and apply to learning math and any other challenging topic….Managing the Mean Math Blues, 2e is first book to clearly incorporate psychology, cognitive behavioral therapy, neuroplascity, visualization, relaxation, study skills, into a book that addresses and offers tools and strategies to overcome math anxiety.”

*Justine Wong *

“The content is sound, the tone of the book is very supportive, and there is just enough content but not too much.”

*Nancy D. Eschen Florida Community College at Jacksonville*

Start strong. Finish stronger.
