I can't find my copy of Harvard. Maybe it so scared me as to make me burn it.
In any event, I don't think its omissions and weaknesses ought to be used against the whole reform movement.
Now that I see an "official" list of omissions--ESPECIALLY RELATED RATES--I am beginning to wonder why ANYBODY would choose it.
But there are definitely good books with nowhere near as many omissions. As I recall, in 1994, my concern was more with the lack of L'Hopital's rule, continuity, and its treatment of limits. That was enough for me. I don't recall shock at noticing no related rates--are you SURE they aren't in there somewhere?
