    Paperback Version Only

    As the publisher of this text I can assure you that there are no Ebook/ Nook versions of this book available from the publisher. Negative reviews appear to be based upon a third party offering this up as an ebook. I'm not sure how they are pulling that off because the nature of this text makes it virtually impossible to translate into ebook format. I suspect that there is a third party vendor automatically converting (clearly without reading the converted version first) and then offering it up for sale. If you see it listed as an ebook/ nook, please avoid that offering.

    The print copy of this book is a reprint of the classic calculus text by Silvanus Thompson that was printed for a specific course requirement and offered up to the public here. It offers up a helpful quick course in calculus that many students find useful. It was my first introduction to the subject and I still refer back to it regularly.

    Again, I apologize for someone offering up an ebook/ nook version of this in my name. I can assure you they do not have an affiliation with my company. I am trying to get to the bottom of it but not having much luck.

    I think this is called fraud. The picture is of the third editio

    I think this is called fraud. The picture is of the third edition. You get the second edition. In an unreadable form. I will never buy an ebook from barnes and noble again.

    calculus made hard

    This is a optical conversion of a 100 year old text. The conversion is poorly formatted making the material hard to physically read. Avoid.

    Required for class but a good read

    Our professor required this book (the MJ Hollis & Co version, although I suspect they're all the same). It is better than some of the dense textbooks that I'm used to but it is still difficult material to grasp. It is rather brief and too the point though. Sometimes a bit too brief. I often found myself going back to review previous chapters to remind myself of how the author got to a certain point and so on.
