I bought this book because though I have done calculus before, I wanted an in depth understanding and a clear structured approach as in the past it wasn't explained to me in terms of why calculus exists and what its for.
This book is very good at explaining the concepts in an easy and simple way.
I really like this book, and I feel like the author stays true to the 'for dummies' concept.
You can gain a real insight into calculus, and what it means, how it is used etc without being intimidated by scary maths. Whenever the maths gets difficult, it is broken down and thoroughly described.
The book has some nice pictures/drawings in there too so it keeps it light and fun.

I took A level maths and further maths many years ago and I needed a quick refresher to help with a friends daughters homework. This did the trick. I loved the explanitary style and the fairly informal aproach. The author obviously thinks in a way similar to me, and this made the learning and recal all the more effective. Good value, good book.
