5.0 von 5 Sternen Simple concepts, elegantly presented, 23. Mai 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Calculus Made Easy: Being a Very-Simplest Introduction to Those Beautiful Methods of Reckoning Which Are Generally Called by the Terrifying Names of the Differential Calculus and the Integral Calculus (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I am a linguist without much math background. I wanted to understand the concepts of calculus and to get familiar with the mathmatical expressions. I am very happy to have found this book. What I thought was a difficult task turned out to be easy and unexpectedly enjoyable. I invested some weekend spare time reading this book. the reward is that now many technical reading on speech and natural language processing become much easier.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Calculus Made Easy, Silvanus P. Thompson and Martin Gardner, 19. März 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Calculus Made Easy: Being a Very-Simplest Introduction to Those Beautiful Methods of Reckoning Which Are Generally Called by the Terrifying Names of the Differential Calculus and the Integral Calculus (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Being an electrical engineer (with additional majors in mathematics and physics) and pushing twenty-five years work experience, I have to admit not a little anger at having read this book. This anger, however, stems from the facts a) that I was not fortunate enough to have had it as a resource while I was learning calculus and b) I have seen a lot of author-aggrandizing techno-babble dedicated to the subject that has served only to discourage the masses! Mr. Gardner has done a great service with regard to both Mr. Thompson's opus and all students of mathematics. With Mr. Gardner's additions, it is even simpler, more straightforward and, in terminology borrowed from the realm of pure mathematics, "elegant" in its presentation and demystification of the subject. To anyone beginning the study of calculus and desiring to understand and appreciate the subject, it is highly recommended for both reading and practice.
M. L. Sewell, Jr., 3/2000

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Timeless Classic, 23. Juni 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Calculus Made Easy: Being a Very-Simplest Introduction to Those Beautiful Methods of Reckoning Which Are Generally Called by the Terrifying Names of the Differential Calculus and the Integral Calculus (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I study calculus for my 'A' Level Further Math course. Reading the book prior, I can follow lectures and tutorials with less difficulty. My questions are easily answered by referring to this highly readable book.
One explores calculus beside the author. No "talking down"; the book imparts knowledge in a witty and irreverent manner.
The version I use is 1974 reprint. In spite of its age, this version is still very useful, though the symbology is dated. I am certain the latest version is every bit as good as mine.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I Flunked Calc TWICE, then got an A with this book!, 9. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Calculus Made Easy: Being a Very-Simplest Introduction to Those Beautiful Methods of Reckoning Which Are Generally Called by the Terrifying Names of the Differential Calculus and the Integral Calculus (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I was embarrassed to fail calculus twice and still pursue a finance degree which required differential calculus on a daily basis. Nothing made sense to me until I read the common sense guide to both diff. and integr. calculus. My paperback version got do dog-eared that I bought five copies of the new Gardner hardcover edition.
I got that finance degree and I handle complex algorithms now. They call math geeks who handle financial math and computers programs, "quants."

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great book for anyone, 30. Juli 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Calculus Made Easy: Being a Very-Simplest Introduction to Those Beautiful Methods of Reckoning Which Are Generally Called by the Terrifying Names of the Differential Calculus and the Integral Calculus (Gebundene Ausgabe)
As a freshman next year I'm signed up to take Pre-Calc. This book has helped me to learn so much already that I'm sure I can get an easy A in all of my math classes in High School. I've also learned so much that I should be able to take advanced math courses during my senior year, such as Calculus 3 or Calculus AP. This book was easy to understand and taught me a lot. Even if you've already had Calculus, this book can teach you more about it and help you understand the sub-subjects within Calculus that you found tough or impossible before.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Martin Gardner-- The Mathemagician of the Twentieth Century, 31. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Calculus Made Easy: Being a Very-Simplest Introduction to Those Beautiful Methods of Reckoning Which Are Generally Called by the Terrifying Names of the Differential Calculus and the Integral Calculus (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Just when you think Martin Gardner can't top himself, he magically appears with another work that is more stunning than his last... if that is possible. Don't even give thjs a second thought , just buy it... for you , your kids, or whoever. There are only 2 people to consider if you want the best in science, math and puzzles: Mr. Gardner and his heir apparennt, Terry Stickels. They are the best--get everything you can from both these great authors!!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lucid and unpretentious, 24. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Calculus Made Easy: Being a Very-Simplest Introduction to Those Beautiful Methods of Reckoning Which Are Generally Called by the Terrifying Names of the Differential Calculus and the Integral Calculus (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Incredible book. I have high technical degrees that imply my mastery of math. The truth is years after this formal 'going-thru-the-motions' education, this book helped me 'understand' what those motions were about. I can't wait to get back to it each evening. M.G's comments are worth it - get the new edition.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Get Two Masters for the Price of One, 15. Februar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Calculus Made Easy: Being a Very-Simplest Introduction to Those Beautiful Methods of Reckoning Which Are Generally Called by the Terrifying Names of the Differential Calculus and the Integral Calculus (Gebundene Ausgabe)
As much as Thompson is (was) a master teacher, Gardner supplements and advances Thompson's genuine genius for explaining calculus. Read this book, and champion math fundamentals--you will not fall prey to the easy allure of the modern, faddish "self-esteem math."

5.0 von 5 Sternen Look who else read this book., 16. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Calculus Made Easy: Being a Very-Simplest Introduction to Those Beautiful Methods of Reckoning Which Are Generally Called by the Terrifying Names of the Differential Calculus and the Integral Calculus (Gebundene Ausgabe)
As the commercial reviews mention this is a classic text. Such notables as Feynman and Dyson both studied this book. In fact, Feynman quotes Thompson in his Lectures on Physics.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent introduction to calculus, 3. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Calculus Made Easy: Being a Very-Simplest Introduction to Those Beautiful Methods of Reckoning Which Are Generally Called by the Terrifying Names of the Differential Calculus and the Integral Calculus (Gebundene Ausgabe)
One of those rare math books that read like a thriller. Those who loved William Dunham's "Mathematical Universe" will surely treasure this one. Thank you Mr. Thompson.
