Review quote

""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 user-friendly approach to the study of calculus, made even more so by Martin Gardner, the most highly acclaimed mathematical expositor of our time."--R.L. Graham, Chief Scientist, AT&T Labs, and author of" Concrete Mathematics"
