The Analysis of Functions
Peter D. Taylor

From the foreword by Andrew M. Gleason, Hollis Professor of Mathematicks and Natural Philosophy, Harvard University:

"Peter Taylor…has designed a calculus course that emphasizes the concepts of calculus far more than the symbolic manipulations. Instructors who want to adopt an interactive teaching style will find this book with its marvelous collection of problems extremely helpful, and their students will learn to think more about the concepts of calculus."
