Review of Strang: Calculus

Wellesley-Cambridge, 716 pages, 2nd edition, 2010

This is an excellent book for everbody who is new to calculus and wants an easy intruduction with very intuitive examples. It is quite interesting to note that all 10 reviewers at Amazon give it the full 5 stars (state 12 / 28 / 2011). However, before you order the book you should first have a look at the free textbook by Strang. It is very similar to his book - you can see this if you look at the listing of the chapters on the Amazon page and compare it with the listing of the chapters at the begin of the free textbook. The difference is the "Highlights of Calculus" chapter at the begin of the book. You should also look at the corresponding Highlights of Calculus videos. If you like the free textbook, you should consider to buy the book, mainly because the pages in the book are of higher quality and nicer to read.
