The examples in the text were written in LaTeX, but were never processed into human readable form, making the text unusable, it'd be as though every page you went to on the internet only showed the bare HTML. My suspicion is the publisher stole the open source text from Project Guttenberg and published that as a print book.

DO NOT buy this version of the book!

I've uploaded a couple of pictures from the text of the book. See for yourself.

Amazon was very gracious though and processed an immediate refund when I explained the issue.

I should have taken the time too "Look Inside" the book. The version I received was this:

Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform (January 7, 2013)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1481933337
ISBN-13: 978-1481933339

I am ordering instead the cheaper:

Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform; 2 Reprint edition (January 28, 2011)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1456531980
ISBN-13: 978-1456531980

The *actual* book is great, just be wary of the printing you get. There is a horrible person out there self-publishing Project Guttenberg through create space. I've informed Amazon and hopefully they will ban this person.

I bought the 3rd Edition(1970) of this book used, after reading through the public domain version which was a scanned PDF. This thing breezes you through concepts and explains them in simple language. "What one fool can do, another can." is by far a great and pointed line from the Prologue, and sets you up for the rest of the work. One tip, though, brush up on your algebra, geometry, and trig before expecting to understand everything here. You will need knowledge from each to complete the exercises at the end of every chapter.

Format: Paperback
This book won't make you a calculus expert. There are a dozen 1200 page, door stop size texts that can do that very well. However, those books tend to make the subject overly complicated and inaccessible for beginners and overly cumbersome for people that just want a review of the chain rule.

For those taking their first calculus course or self-teaching, Thompson's book takes the terror out of the subject and gets you doing problems quickly with an intuitive, boiled-down to "just the nuts and bolts" style. The whole book can be worked through in a few evenings giving one a general feel for both the differential and integral side of calculus. The subject will make a lot more sense in a college-level course having had that 10,000 foot high overview. Sorry, you'll still need the 1200 page door stop at some point if you really want to learn the subject. I needed a quick refresher after not doing any calculus for 20 years and didn't have time to work through a textbook. Thompson's book was just right for that.

Note: This review is for the hardcopy of the 2nd edition, not the Kindle version!

The trick to mastering calculus is solving a lot of problems, seeing by example and having great explanations. This book lacks in all of these things, though the author goes to great lengths to make it simple, there are far, far, far, far better approaches to really learning everything.
