This review is for the Kindle format of the book only. I bought the paperback format of the book by P Abbott in 2000 and, at the age of 68 and looking forward to amusing myself when I finally retire in May 2015, and revisiting the maths I studied at A Level all those years ago, I thought it would be handy to carry it about on my Kindle. What a mistake! The problem is that, in the Kindle format, many of the formulas and graphs are tiny and do not expand when increasing the font size. Some can be zoomed using the magnifier, which disconnects them from their related text, and some cannot be zoomed at all so I need a pocket lens to read them. This is such a pity since P Abbott's book is an excellent step by step explanation of the calculus. A worthwhile translation of it into Kindle format would be wonderful, however, as it has been formatted for Kindle in this way, I feel cheated out of my money.

This book covers the basic and then move to more advanced stuff. However, this book is not for complete beginners, but for those that have a good knowledge of mathematics ( or those that have studied A-level mathematics or higher qualification).

a pretty good book. I did well at maths at school (including calculus) but this was more from a mechanical familiarity with formulas or exam techniques, I didn't really understand any of the underlying math theory. This book, however, explains calculus well and in a graded fashion. I highly recommend it. It would be improved if it had question and answer sections, but this is probably easy to find in more traditional textbooks

I found so many printing errors and mistakes within the first couple of chapters, that it became hard to believe anything the book went onto say, and made this book a very unhelpful introduction to the subject...

In print, on paper, this is a very good book. Cover is given to calculus at a pace that is well suited for those of us who have derivatives and integrals a bit back in our heads, or did not gave it sufficient attention on first acquaintance. The concepts leading up to derivatives and, eventually integrals, are all presented, explained, illustrated, and having associated exercises. There could for me have been many more of the latter, as that would have facilitated learning; particularly of integrals.

The digital version has been more disappointing. On my 8.9" E-reader, formulas and proofs are not possible for me to read without first having them enlarged in a separate window. That is because they are not part of the running text, but graphs (pictures), so using a bigger font does not enlarge them. Having them magnified in a separate window hides the running text, and that made me having difficulties with following the presented text and explanations.

My dislike for this learning text is not so much based on its content rather than how that content can be viewed.
The text in the Kindle reader can be expanded and reduced as normal, however, the formulae that appear throughout the book cannot be expanded at all and I feel that they have been included as 'graphics files' whose properties have been fixed at insertion time.
These graphically rendered images of all of the formulas are barely visible, let alone readable and require the use of an external magnifying glass or suchlike in order to view them. This clearly removes the enjoyment and learning a person might get from reading this book in the Kindle reader.

This updated version of the classic Abbott EUP edition includes ODEs.

Truely timeless. I challenge even the most innumerate not to understand this.
