I honestly enjoyed using James Stewart (yes heathen) when I did calc I, II, III and now these forums are buzzing with Spivak - as if he's the new Giancoli/Feynman of math text books(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

whats the big deal?

Oh - and i did check out the Amazon.com reviews - surprisingly the one bad review I read gave me details on a free calculus book written by a professor in U of Wisc which he offers for free to download and apparently the reviewer suggests that that book was of a higher quality. - what Luck!

Thoughts + regards?

PS: if this is in the wrong section please let me know?
