3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Let's Compare Options Preptorial TOP 500 REVIEWER on May 28, 2013
Format: Paperback
Morris Kline is one of the best math writers of all time. His books are intended for folks with only the most basic math, and he then uses physical and intuitive analogies to explain what's going on "beneath" the equations. MANY of his books are now available in inexpensive Dover editions, just put Morris Kline in the search bar at the top of any Amazon page!

This book starts with calculus after leaving off there in the first volume. Like his intuitive calculus book, it reads like an adventure novel! This is a MUST buy if you're interested in the history of math. His Mathematics and the Physical World book (Mathematics and the Physical World (Dover books explaining science)) is one of the all time best introductions to advanced math ever written, from High School to beginning undergrad. ALL his books make any other text MUCH more clear, due to his wonderful "real world" examples and palpable enthusiasm.

If you see reviews trashing this or any other math book due to Kindle, don't fault the book! In general ALL e-readers (not just Kindle) still have trouble with LaTex, especially older "scanned" texts! If the book has complex exponential equations, just assume they'll be problematic as e-books, especially if the edition is pre-2005. Of course I agree with reviewers who point this out, but it is sad that it effects the overall rating of the BOOK itself, which deserves many more stars!!!

Library Picks reviews only for the benefit of Amazon shoppers and has nothing to do with Amazon, the authors, manufacturers or publishers of the items we review.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Kindle edition of this work is incomplete . Key examples are missing notably the non- commutativity
of quaternian multiplication. I would be unlikely to by Kindle editions of any textbook or technical work.
