From the Back Cover
Drawing on their decades of teaching experience, William Briggs and Lyle Cochran have created a calculus text that carries the teacher's voice beyond the classroom. That voice-evident in the narrative, the figures, and the questions interspersed in the narrative-is a master teacher leading readers to deeper levels of understanding. The authors appeal to readers' geometric intuition to introduce fundamental concepts and lay the foundation for the more rigorous development that follows. Comprehensive exercise sets have received praise for their creativity, quality, and scope.
Functions; Limits; Derivatives; Applications of the Derivative; Integration; Applications of Integration; Integration Techniques; Sequences and Infinite Series; Power Series; Parametric and Polar Curves.
For all readers interested in single variable and multivariable calculus for mathematics, engineering, and science. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I however had a terrible experience with the vendor RentU from whom I rented the book. I rented a used copy of the book for $20 and ended up paying $107, which is more than what Amazon charged for a new copy. I contacted said vendor but I was blown off.
I can't post my review of RentU in their review section apparently because the purchase was over 90 days ago. Which is silly because I was using the book during that time period.
Overall this book wasn't bad at all. Just be careful how you go about acquiring it! I've used Campus Book Rentals several times and had not a single problem. Good luck!
