BEST MATH BOOK EVER!!!
The price is very reasonable.
The graphics are completely illegible on a Kindle2. This problem has presented itself on many other potentially useful books on the Kindle format. Many times the image is just pasted in without any regard for resolution. Please! make the graphics to suit the device so that the book can be enjoyed the way it was intended.
I have a good background in Calculus, but it was a struggle to learn initially. Because of this, I appreciate an excellent explanation of the subject. I read this book in an evening, and came away with an even BETTER understanding an appreciation of the beauty of Calculus.
And finally, a statement one doesn't hear too much about Mathematics books, it leaves you wanting MORE by the same author.
I have flipped over most pages of the book and it seems to be a great learning resource. The only problem is You don't know what's included in the book or where to find help on a particular topic unless you read the whole book.
I don't know if the paper version includes a Table of Contents and subject index but I'm guessing it does not, because in the preview pages they don't show and Amazon always includes them in the preview.
If it was a PDF I would do a Table of Contents with links to sections and subsections myself, but being a Kindle version I don't know how to do it.

TWO WEEKS LATER:
I could convert the Kindle version to RTF format and created a Table of contents in Word which I then exported to PDF. It is 7.5 x 5.5 inches so it shows perfectly on an iPad and the table of contents is linked to the sections in the book. I have raised it fro *** to ***** as I have read the whole book now and it has helped me a lot with my calculus skills. I wish I had the authors email address to send him a copy of the edited PDF.

This book provides a good (somewhat) alternative development of calculus. Try it if you're having trouble with more conventional presentations.Published 13 months ago by Herbert Dobbs
Easy to read, well written. Examples are good and easy to follow for solutions. I recommend this as a supplement for any Calculus student.Published 16 months ago by Claire Jones
Have you ever asked a teacher why a particular rule works and the response was more or less, "it just does"? Well the answer can probably be found in this book.Published 19 months ago by lson
It could use more pictures. Visual it good. Ok more words! I still don't understand how the anti derivative yields the original function.Published 21 months ago by thomas r howe
