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

Praise for Martin Gardner

"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

From the Inside Flap:

In perhaps the most important popular math publications of the decade, this classic calculus primer has been transformed into a modern masterpiece that explains the timeless concepts of calculus in a contemporary and user-friendly voice. Martin Gardner, The "Mathematical Games" columnist for Scientific American for over a quarter of a century, is the perfect mathematician to make calculus easy once again.

Calculus, though usually seen as the most challenging subject faced by a math student, does not have to be impossible. Silvanus P. Thompson wrote Calculus Made Easy nearly ninety years ago to show that differential and integral calculus is in fact not difficult at all. Thompson believed that once a reader has grasped the basic principles of differentiation and integration, the rest of calculus will follow naturally. The books continuing popularity over the years is proof of his complete success.

In the first major revision of Calculus Made Easy since 1921, Gardner has thoroughly updated the text to reflect recent developments in method and terminology, written an extensive preface and three new introductory chapters, and added more than twenty recreational problems for practice and enjoyment.

Calculus Made Easy, already the preeminent primer for the average reader, a book that has sold over one million copies, has become even more accessible and informative in the masterful hands of one of the twentieth century's greatest thinkers.
