This is the as said, accompanying book of the course (but not critical to read first).
The online course is free and there appears to be a Ted video of this uber professor lady that managed to switch on the light in her head at 26 in math and science after doing art and languages

Whether you are a student struggling to fulfill a math or science requirement, or you are embarking on a career change that requires a higher level of math competency, A Mind for Numbers offers the tools you need to get a better grasp of that intimidating but inescapable field. Engineering professor Barbara Oakley knows firsthand how it feels to struggle with math. She flunked her way through high school math and science courses, before enlisting in the army immediately after graduation. When she saw how her lack of mathematical and technical savvy severely limited her options – both to rise in the military and to explore other careers – she returned to school with a newfound determination to re-tool her brain to master the very subjects that had given her so much trouble throughout her entire life.
