Number of pages: 344
Calculus without Limits is an original exposition of single-variable calculus using the classic differential approach and is the first completely new calculus book to hit the shelves in approximately 95 years that deliberately minimizes the use of limits, one of the major stumbling blocks initially standing in the way of calculus students.

The style is fluent and familiar; the treatment continuous and undogmatic. The main difficulties which encompass the early study of the Calculus are discussed in connexion with practical and historical illustrations which leave little to be desired.
by Karl Heinz Dovermann - University of Hawaii
The author introduces limits and derivatives, provides some rules for their computations, discusses some properties of differential equations, geometric properties of graphs, introduces the ideas of the definite and the indefinite integral, etc.

Where many texts present a general theory of calculus followed by substantial collections of worked examples, we instead pose problems or situations, consider possibilities, and then ask students to investigate and explore.
by Russell A. Gordon - Whitman College
The text represents one person's attempt to put the essential ideas of calculus into a short and concise format. It may not appeal to a wide range of mathematicians, but it should provide most students with a good foundation in calculus.
