    You might do better Googling for some forums dedicated to him or his books.

    I think so,but at least I should try it.

    No, you shouldn't. Seriously. It would be inappropriate. You should ask your question to a professor you know at your university.

    go for it------or, you could just give up and not try anything

    Perhaps you could find an online forum where you can ask questions about calculus, and there would be people willing to answer them. :smile:

    First hit.

    My first hit is the TeX code that he created or some sort, doesn't appear to apply to the calculus book.

    I suggest sending him an email. The worst that can happen is he wont reply. Do you have his email?

    They produce solution manuals that they want you to buy.

    If you believe that only Michael Spivak can answer your question related to calculus then you are wrong .
