He subsequently did research at the Mathematics Institute of the University of Warsaw in Poland. He also taught at The Pennsylvania State University. He is currently Professor of Mathematics at California State University, Long Beach. His research field is functional analysis.
So if you do get this book, don't blindly believe everything it says. If you can't figure out how they got their answer it might be because they're wrong.
Needless to say, Cengage will be receiving an angry letter from me.
My copy is a used, I bought for $9, I love it how I could just write on the book without worrying anything.
Anyways, if you are serious about teaching yourself beyond 1 + 1, this book is for you.
Oh, and btw, get yourself a lot of scrap paper, I found it usually requires you to use one whole page A4 size to perform the calculation for one question.
