Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for Martin Gardner's New Edition of Calculus Made Easy:

"Martrin Gardner is one of the greatest intellects produced in this country in this century." --Douglas Hofstadter

"Sylvanus Thompson's Calculus Made Easy is arguably the best math teaching ever. To a non-mathematician, its simplicity and clarity reveals the mathematical genius of Newton, Leibniz, and Thompson himself. Martin Gardner deserves huge thanks for renewing this great book." --Julian Simon, author of Population Matters

"A remarkable and original user-friendly approach to the study of calculus, made even more so by Martin Gardner, the most highly acclaimed mathematical expositor of out time." --R.L. Graham, Chief Scientist, AT&T Labs, and author of Concrete Mathematics

"Before the epsilons and deltas of a college course taught by an eminent mathematician, I learned the elements of calculus from S.P. Thompson's classic work accessible to a new generation of people thirsty for mathematics." --George W. Clark, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

"For more than half a century, Martin Gardner has been the single brightest beacon defending rationality and good science...He is one of the most brilliant men and gracious writers I have known." --Stephen Jay Gould

"Martin Gardner's contribution to contemporary culture is unique." --Noam Chomsky

"Martin Gardner is one of the most versatile men of the century." --Raymond Smullyan --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
