Description: There's something about calculus that can evoke a mixture of both wonder and dread. I was recently reminded of my first encounter with calculus by the announcement of the publication later this year of a new edition of the book Calculus Made Easy (Sylvanus P. Thompson (1851-1916)). More than 30 years ago, the same title had proved irresistibly inviting to me as a high school student facing the mysterious realm of limits, derivatives, and integrals. Also Calculus Lite (Frank Morgan) and other recommended texts.
