Was it Calculus Made Easy?

https://www.amazon.com/Calculus-Made-Easy-Silvanus-Thompson/...

It seems easy to find a pdf on the web, but I didn't want to post that.




The original (not the Martin Gardner version) is public domain at this point. Project Gutenberg has a PDF of it.

Ok, thank you. I did not realize this version was PD.


yes, I was looking for this book. Thank you. I wish I had read this when I was in school. I liked the book for explaining complex topic in a very simple, easily understandable way. This would be a great book to introduce calculus to your kids. I read chapter 2 (on different degrees of smallness) and found it enlightening.


You're welcome. Happy reading!


There's also a website if you don't like PDFs: http://calculusmadeeasy.org/
