Discover The Magic
Many people have never heard of Magic Squares, and at a glance, some people may even associate a Magic Square with bingo or Sudoku. Although Magic Squares have been a source of interest and fascination for humans for over four millennia, most people nowadays have yet to discover the joy and enchantment of Magic Squares.
This book will shed light on the simultaneous simplicity and complexity of Magic Squares, illustrating the basic mathematics behind them, the intriguing patterns created, the many different guises in which they appear, as well as some of the uses to which magicians have put them.
Math Is Good For The Brain
Yes, I know it's hard to believe, but math is actually good for the brain. The brain is basically like any other part of the human body - it needs regular exercise to stay fit and healthy, and this can come in many forms, be it playing blackjack (card counting takes a lot of practice!), working out the odds in, say, roulette games, or calculating your change - also delving into the wonders of Magic Squares will certainly get your brain going!
I realise that many people have an almost morbid fear of mathematics, and that's almost always down to the way it's taught (i.e. badly and boringly), but get children started early enough, and make it fun, and they'll never have this problem for the rest of their lives - they'll be streets ahead of their classmates.
Now, while this Magic Squares book may be a bit advanced for your toddler right now, it's never too young to start, because using the right approach and tools, it's perfectly feasible to teach your baby math and reading skills, even at the tender age of six months - then you can buy him my book for his first birthday! :-)
Originally submitted to The Magic Circle, for which I was awarded the degree of Associate of The Inner Magic Circle (it is a rare honour to be promoted to this degree within this prestigious magic society on the basis of written work), this unique book is now available to "quadramagicologists" everywhere, from Amazon.com.
