I made it through all my calculus classes as an engineering major, but honestly never understood any of the theory behind what I was doing. Now, as a masters student, I need to understand the concepts of calculus. I am not joking when I say that I learned far more from reading this book than I did in 4 semesters of college calc.

Lots of spelling errors left over from the scanning. Much of the layout is lost. It is a really good book, but I read it in a printed form, and this copy is derived from a "Project Gutenberg" copy. Which may be fair use for an out of copyright book, but this edition uses the cover with Martin Gardner's name on it, and I think it is unfair. The cover would not be out of copyright, and I don't think that he would want his name used on this edition. It does preserve the essential text but needs to be copy edited.

Numerous equations are in a tiny font that ruins the Nook version of this wonderful classic. I own the print version of the Gardiner revision. It's wonderful. The Nook version of this revision is a disaster. Shame on the publisher. .

I have just started reading the book, but so far it provides helpful chapters covering derivatives and so much more for calculus. It also has many examples with the answers so you can check your work.

This was very useful to one well equipped in algebra. They say those who have difficulty with calculus have a hard time with algebra. This author made sure to include plenty of examples. I recommend this book.

This update of a classic is a must for those seeking an authoritative source of introductory calculus. The authors have brought only the critical elements to their discussion and exercises. Readers will find this a wonderful introduction or review to the basic principles of calculus. Well done!
