good but needs an errata,
This review is from: A First Course in Mathematical Analysis (Paperback)
Although this is a good book it suffers from many small irritating text errors. Some of the maths is wrong references to wrong theorem and stating of a proof by contradiction when it wasn't also the remark regarding L'Hospital's rule is totally unnecessary as it's false. These are a few of many errors I've spotted and I have not read that much. This book could certainly have done with a bit more proof checking (by some one like myself). Actually there's a small error in the discussion of the graph of the blancmange function on the front cover. I wish the author would correct his errors in an errata but I was unable to find one.
