Jim Westabout this book: This book seeks to inspire young readers, especially girls, to pursue math and science studies. I was inspired to write this book over 14 years ago while hoping to instill a love of learning in my own two daughters. It took over a decade to complete as many life events occurred like Hurricane Katrina, Iraq, etc. Now its done and I am busy working to get Book 2 completed.
"Libellus de Numeros makes math relevant, and Jim West embraces the thought that girls can love science and math just as much as boys. It is a story that is full of empowerment and every girl should be able to read this and think that it could be them."
"Mr. West has an ingenious way of writing his teachings so that you learn without even knowing it, fantastic reverse psych at work here. Every little detail is so well written that you literally feel like you are there with Alex, you physically feel scared, you feel triumphant, you feel alone, a beautifully written roller coaster ride"
