The author can awaken for you a faculty which is surprisingly dormant in accountants, engineers, scientists, businesspeople, and others who work with figures. This is "number sense" — or the ability to recognize relations between numbers considered as whole quantities. Lack of this number sense makes it entirely possible for a scientist to be proficient in higher mathematics, but to bog down in the arithmetic of everyday life.
This book teaches the necessary mathematical techniques that schools neglect to teach: Horizontal addition, left to right multiplication and division, etc. You will learn a method of multiplication so rapid that you'll be able to do products in not much more time than it would take to write the problem down on paper.
This is not a collection of tricks that work in only a very few special cases, but a serious, capably planned course of basic mathematics for self-instruction. It contains over 9,000 short problems and their solutions for you to work during spare moments. Five or ten minutes spent daily on this book will, within ten weeks, give you a number sense that will double or triple your calculation speed.

Now–a -days speed math system ( like Vedic Mathematics , Trachtenberg System) are gaining widespread popularity among students as well as teachers. Speed math refers to faster methods and techniques to solve arithmetic calculation mentally. It saves considerable amount of time in competitive exam. So it is worthy to study speed math.
In order to compute given calculation mentally, one need to recall right kind of specific method (shortcut) out of 1000's. Instead of doing so,
i) Is it possible to compute any arithmetic operation (like addition, multiplication) quickly by using scientific approach ?
ii) Is it possible to derive all methods in speed math by using unique principle ?
iii) Is there any unique secret (principle) behind speed mathematics ?
After researching speed math about 2-3 years, I realized that there is unique secret (principle) behind speed mathematics !! This book explains entire speed mathematics by using single principle and gives introduction to new number system called as global number system. It extends VM framework in some of the area like divisibility, n'th root.
