Calculus: an intuitive and physical approach by Morris Kline.

I am curious as to what you guys here on PF think of the book.

The reviews on Amazon were extremely positive.

I'm tired of the shenanigans and plug-in-chug methodoligy tought in school (although I can't really blame them, they're given such little time to teach so much).

That's why I'm really looking for a book that explains the WHY behind the math, but at the same time I'm not looking for graduate level analysis or anthing of that sort (not yet), just a really solid level understanding of Calculus.

I'm really fine with overexplanations of topics, as long as it helps me understand them.

You might even say that I'd like a 'hold your hand" book that really walks you through all the concepts, but at a deeper level than what is taught in Highschool.

Thanks
