Kline's worldwide and combined reputation as a mathematician, a teacher, a writer is proved again !
This book is the absolute prelude to Apostol's trilogy of analysis (or Goursat's "A course in Mathematical Analysis"), see my other reviews...
It's a thrilling and unique blending of intuition and rigour, in a rarely attained clarity of exposition, i.e. an irreplaceable book in your mathematical collection.
