This is a genuine calculus book, specially designed for anyone who recalls a little high school algebra and is curious about seeing the peculiar way that mathematicians have wired calculus together. Our idea was this: if we could find characters for each mathematical concept in differential calculus and set them all to work, the result would be far more lively and involving than the usual textbook trip.

About the Author:

Howard Swann studied applied mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley, during the Free Speech days of the sixties, receiving his Ph.D. in 1968. He has been at San Jose State University since 1970. He worked for many years in collaboration John Johnson, a gifted cartoonist, on "Prof. E. McSquared's Original and Highly Edifying Calculus Primer", the world's first Calculus Comic Book.

Review:

"....the main achievement is in the exceptionally understandable treatment matching the rigorous mathematics. Highly recommended." -- Alan Sherlock, The Times (London) Educational Supplement

"...for any beginning student who needs help dramatizing mathematical arguments...." -- The American Mathematical Monthly

"...nonmathematicians and nonscientists would like some insight into calculus, I think, and wouldn't be frightened by this book... -- Martin Gardner, author of "Mathematical Games" column for "Scientific American"
