Written as a textbook, Calculus is used both for theoretical calculus courses and for ''Introduction to Analysis'' courses in several U.S. universities. It is also used (in rather larger numbers) in quite a few Canadian universities, as well as in a few universities overseas. Because of this, sales of the Answer Book, which are intended for instructors of the courses, are normally restricted.

Every aspect of this book was influenced by the desire to present calculus not merely as a prelude to but as the first real encounter with mathematics. Since the foundations of analysis provided the arena in which modern modes of mathematical thinking developed, calculus ought to be the place in which to expect, rather than avoid, the strengthening of insight with logic. In addition to developing the students' intuition about the beautiful concepts of analysis, it is surely equally important to persuade them that precision and rigor are neither deterrents to intuition, nor ends in themselves, but the natural medium in which to formulate and think about mathematical questions.
