Format: Hardcover
Visually this is the best book on calculus, and one of the best books on maths in general, I have ever seen. It is replete with excellent illustrations of the concepts (particularly in three dimensions) and offers problems ranging from easy to very challenging. It doesn't go into as much depth as I would like (compared to Ian S. Murphy and Kreyszig, for example) but it is still an outstanding textbook.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By J. Weller on 3 April 2010
Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book on calculus in many ways. It deals with the subject in a thoughtful and well-structured way, taking the reader on a journey from functions to second-order differential equations in a clear and logical manner. The numerous graded exercises at the end of each section and subsection are generally good. In general, it might be best suited as a course support text as it is not without its errors. There seem to be small mistakes in most sections, however they are limited to the exercises rather than the main explanatory text in most cases. It seems that they are mainly due to carelessness when converting from the original text to this metric edition. Unfortunately, these errors can be both irritating and time-consuming to student and instructor.

Only issue is it doesn't come with practice question solutions; it has to be bought seperately.

Very useful book, it doesn't have the same order of topics as the USA version but you can live with this fact.

Again and again and again 16 Sept. 2003
By greatgm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Again I will say for the umpteenth time. This book is NO GOOD. I DON'T CARE WHAT KIND OF IMPROVEMENTS THIS LOW-QUALITY BOOK MADE.
I've used the 4th edition of this low quality book and I saw the previous editions to it. I don't EVEN begin to think that this so-called new 5th addition brings anything new to the table that the calculus student can benefit from.
I will speak as a pharmacy student from an accredited pharmacy school. If any professor asked me to recommend a calculus book to teach his class the one recommendation I would give to that math teacher is to "STAY AWAY FROM THIS AUTHOR AND HIS CALCULUS BOOKS". There are way too may user-friendly calculus that explain the concepts and methodology of calculus one million times better than what Stewart and his collegues can write.
Stewart needs to retire from the math texbook writing business.
