Those looking for Calc books should check out "CALCULUS, from graphical, numerical, and symbolic points of view," by Arnold Ostebee & Paul Zorn of St. Olaf College. Its popularity on the college scene is right behind the Harvard series nationally, but I think you'll find it better put together. It's organized from the calculus reform, or renewal, approach and has students emphasize mathematics while de-emphasizing MSM (mindless symbolic manipulation) although there's plenty of SM for those who like that approach. Just email Alexa Epstein, senior editor at Saunders College Publishers and she'll send you info and even examination materials if what you see interests you. She's at: AEpstein@saunderscollege.com
At the recent NCTM convention, I also picked up Foerster, which was strongly recommended since it was written by a HS teacher with the new AP curriculum in mind. I like it, but I like the flavor of the OZ materials better. The approach is quite different for those used to traditional texts, but it presents math as I think it should be presented. Our school will be changing to Ostebee & Zorn (OZ) for next year.
