Praise for other Head First books
Head First Algebra is a clear, easy-to-understand method to learn a subject that many people find
intimidating. Because of its somewhat irreverent attitude in presenting mathematical topics for
beginners, this book inspires students to learn Algebra at a depth they might have otherwise thought
unachievable.”
— Ariana Anderson
Statistician at UCLAs Center for Cognitive Neuroscience
“The way Head First Algebra presents information is so conversational and intriguing it helps in the
learning process. It truly feels like you’re having a conversation with the author.”
— Amanda Borcky
College student
Head First Algebra has got to be the best book out there for learning basic algebra. It’s genuinely
entertaining.”
— Dawn Griffiths
Author, Head First Statistics
Head First Algebra is an engaging read. The book does a fantastic job of explaining concepts and taking
the reader step-by-step through solving problems. The problems were challenging and applicable to
everyday life.”
— Shannon Stewart
Math teacher
Head First Algebra is driven by excellent examples from the world in which students live. No trains leaving
from the same station at the same time moving in opposite directions. The authors anticipate well the
questions that arise in students’ minds and answer them in a timely manner. A very readable look at the
topics encountered in Algebra 1.”
— Herbert Tracey
Instructor of mathematical sciences, Loyola University Maryland
“If you want to learn some physics, but you think it’s too difficult, buy Head First Physics! It will probably
help, and if it doesn’t, you can always use it as a doorstop or hamster bedding or something. I wish I had
a copy of this book when I was teaching physics.”
— John Allister
Physics teacher
Praise for other Head First books
Head First Physics has achieved the impossible—a serious textbook that makes physics fun. Students all
over will be thinking like a physicist!”
— Georgia Gale Grant
Freelance science writer, communicator, and broadcaster
“Great graphics, clear explanations, and some crazy real-world problems to solve! Head First Physics is full of
strategies and tips to attack problems. It encourages a team approach that’s so essential in today’s work world.”
— Diane Jaquith
High school physics, chemistry, and physical science teacher
Head First Physics is an outstandingly good teacher masquerading as a physics book! You never feel fazed
if you don’t quite understand something the first time because you know it will be explained again in a
different way and then repeated and reinforced.”
— Marion Long
Teacher
“Dawn Griffiths has split some very complicated concepts into much smaller, less frightening bits of stuff
that real-life people will find very easy to digest. Head First Statistics has lots of graphics and photos that
make the material very approachable, and I have developed quite a crush on the attractive lady model
who is asking about gumballs on page 458.”
— Bruce Frey
Author, Statistics Hacks
Head First Statistics is an intuitive way to understand statistics using simple, real-life examples that make

— Michael Prerau
Computational neuroscientist and statistics instructor, Boston University
“Thought Head First was just for computer nerds? Try the brain-friendly way with Head First Statistics and
you’ll change your mind. It really works.”

Wouldn’t it be dreamy if
there was a book to help me
understand geometry that was
more fun than going to the
dentist? It’s probably nothing
but a fantasy....
