Fine-tune your numerical mindset with a quantitative review that serves as a tool for perceiving probability in a new way. Whether you’re a high school student, college student, or a test-prep candidate, this book’s wealth of explanations and insights makes it a perfect learning companion. Enjoy the benefits of your own short course in probability: •Be able to think conceptually by understanding how key problems “fit” within the main topics of probability, permutations, combinations, and enumerations. *Master basic probability using a simple “flowchart” to identify the correct formulas. *Understand when to “add” probabilities and when to “multiply” probabilities. *Be able to distinguish between events that are independent versus not independent and events that are mutually exclusive versus not mutually exclusive. *Grasp key differences between permutations and combinations and look for key words such as “arrangements” or “selections” to indicate the correct problem type. *Solve tricky permutation problems that involve repeated letters or numbers. *Approach probability problems with a newfound confidence and competency. This book is focused on honing those thinking skills that are essential for mastering basic probability. Such thinking skills make it much more likely that a person will be able to understand the “how” and “why” of problem solving, approach the subject in a conceptual way, and grasp those key principles that act as themes to bind related problems. These skills combine the science of math with the art of numbers. “To get started in probability theory, all you need are a few basic principles. Here they are, clear and uncluttered, in a short, simple book that comes as a welcome breath of fresh air.” —Dr. Ian Stewart, author of 17 Equations That Changed the World and the Cabinet of Mathematical Curiosities

For Writing Aficionados from All Walks of Life This book is based on a simple but powerful observation: Students and young professionals who develop outstanding writing skills do so primarily by mastering a limited number of the most important writing principles, which they use over and over again. This statement begs the question: What are these recurring principles? The answer to this question is the basis of this material. "The Little Red Writing Book" is especially suitable for high school students wanting to master the basics of expository writing. It is also suitable for college students seeking a review of basic writing skills. A wealth of examples, charts, and engaging exercises makes this book an invaluable guide for anyone who wants to master those skills that will make a good writer even better. Brandon Royal is an award-winning writer whose educational authorship includes "The Little Gold Grammar Book, The Little Red Writing Book Deluxe Edition, The Little Green Math Book, The Little Blue Reasoning Book, " and "Reasoning with Numbers." During his tenure working in Hong Kong for US-based Kaplan Educational Centers a Washington Post subsidiary and the largest test-preparation organization in the world Brandon honed his theories of teaching and education and developed a set of key learning principles to help define the basics of writing, grammar, math, and reasoning. A Canadian by birth and graduate of the University of Chicago s Booth School of Business, his interest in writing began after completing writing courses at Harvard University. Since then he has authored a dozen books and reviews of his books have appeared in "Time Asia" magazine, "Publishers Weekly, Library Journal of America, Midwest Book Review, The Asian Review of Books, Choice Reviews Online, Asia Times Online, " and About.com. Brandon is a five-time winner of the International Book Awards, a five-time gold medalist at the President s Book Awards, as well as a winner of the Global eBook Awards, the USA Book News Best Book Awards, and recipient of the 2011 Educational Book of the Year award as presented by the Book Publishers Association of Alberta. The articulate exposition of Royal s twenty principles of writing fit neatly into 128 short, accessible (paperback) pages. I recommend this wonder to all my writing students. Perhaps one day writing committees will wisely follow suit and make this a primary text for all writing courses at their schools. --Ray Turner, B.A., MA (Communications), Writing Instructor and Former Educational Administrator, Corpus Christi TX, USA

For Writing and Grammar Aficionados from All Walks of Life This deluxe edition contains the complete contents of "The Little Red Writing Book" and "The Little Gold Grammar Book." Whereas writing is based on principles in which writing is deemed better or worse, more effective or less effective grammar is based on rules, in which writing is deemed right or wrong, correct or incorrect. With coverage of the most useful writing principles and the most commonly encountered rules of grammar, "The Little Red Writing Book Deluxe Edition" is an invaluable guide for anyone who wants to master those skills that will make a good writer even better. Enjoy the benefits of your own self-paced writing course: Writing has four pillars structure, style, readability, and grammar and each pillar is like the single leg of a sturdy chair. *Structure relates to organization and deciding in which order to present your ideas. Learn how to choose the best writing structure to develop your ideas, how to break your writing topic into two to four parts, and how to write with a top-down approach. *Style describes how one writes, including how to use specific examples to support what is written. Learn how to make writing more simple, powerful, and vivid. Understand how to vary sentence beginnings, how to create a formal and informal tone, and how to keep writing gender neutral. *Readability focuses on presentation and how to make your document visually pleasing and easy to read. Learn how to make key words stand out, how to use headings and headlines to frame writing, and how to increase the use of white space to allow your document to breathe. *Grammar is about expressing language in a correct and acceptable form. Review the rules of grammar in terms of six common categories (subject-verb agreement, pronoun usage, modification, parallelism, comparisons, and verb tenses), and use short exercises and problems to help integrate key concepts of grammar, diction, idioms, and style. *Also included are special sections on editing tips and punctuation, America English vs. British English, and traditional writing vs. digital writing.

The Map Maker is the story of a young adventurer who travels to Paradise Island with the aid of a magical map. Here, he begins his own “knowledge quest” to better understand why people see the world just the way they do. Using simple prose, this illustrated short story introduces and explores the meaning behind the phrase “the subjectivity of truth and the relativity of reality.” Target Audience: This story is ideally suited to high school or college students studying English literature or philosophy and lends itself to classroom or group discussion. It is a think piece that explores the topic of human perspective and shows the folly in believing that we can see the world in an objective manner. “The Map Maker is a short story as playful as it is poignant. The marriage of whimsical images and thought-provoking text creates a unique tapestry: one that weaves storytelling and philosophy with literary verve. Royal challenges us to think about the key role that perspective plays in our lives. He also shows how literature, acting as both an art form and a pragmatic tool, can help us gain critical insights.” —Rachel Metalin, B.A. M.A., English Instructor, Upper Canada College (UCC), Toronto, Canada

Presented as a light philosophical commentary on living life on the wild side, PLEASURE ISLAND is a fable about the difficulty of keeping our dreams alive: even in paradise it's never easy. When our young narrator is handed down the Map Maker's legendary travel journal, he learns of the Map Maker's seminal journey to Pleasure Island, the wonderment and bewilderment, and of his struggle to keep paradise found from becoming paradise lost. The story reveals the secret behind the Map Maker's beautiful, evocative maps, and the reason he refused to travel in his later years, deciding instead to live vicariously through his own map creations. "A delectable dish of human foible, served with parsnips baked in irony oil, all topped with a sprinkling of satire-roasted fennel seeds." - Justin Hurwitz, Editor, The Harvard Lampoon
