Someone here recommended a 1983 book by Milton W. Monson Sr. called Physics is Constipated. I found it on Amazon but it was only printed in limited numbers and was priced at $100. That’s a bit spendy, but I put it in the shopping cart anyway, and left it there. A while later I was purchasing something else and found that the price had been slashed to $50, and I impulsively bought it. That was months ago.
Here it sits right in my reach, but is otherwise beyond my reach. It is 659 pages, each littered with algebraic computations … many years ago I had decided to take the GRE so I could go to grad school and was studying my high school algebra early mornings. I found that I could still manage the basics. Had I ever taken that test, I probably would have passed that section. But it is tedious and unrewarding. I have many times told people over the years that as a CPA I do not do math. I do arithmetic. (I never attended grad school, by the way. That was just an ego trip.)
I’ll never make it through this book, as the algebra is far more than basic. But it could be a valuable resource for someone with better math and science chops than I possess. So I offer it, first come, for free to any reader who wants it. Let me know in the comments, using your real email address, and I will contact you. And don’t worry … domestic postal rates for books are very cheap. I will mail it to you.
Sorry … can’t do international.
PS: Not only can I not do math, but I am apparently blind too. Check out the first comment below. This cannot be coincidental.
