Summary: Let's face it. Math textbooks are not published out of the goodness of people's hearts. They're published because most of the individuals who write them will get fired from their jobs as college professors if they don't publish a textbook every now and then. As a result, most study guides are a reflection of their authors - dry and difficult. The Humongous Book of Algebra Problems book is an exception to that rule.
