From the book reviews:"The book under review, a little over 500 pages co-authored with Maria Terrell, is a first-approximation to Lax's dream come true: a 'thorough revision' of the 1976 Lax-Burstein-Lax. ... This reviewer will attempt to use them as a pedagogical tool when teaching single-variable calculus or introductory analysis in the future. ... It is filled with beautiful ideas that are elegantly explained and chock-full with problems that will enchant both the experienced teacher and the curious novice." (Tushar Das, MAA Reviews, December, 2014)"The text starts with introductory facts on real numbers, sequences and limits, followed by chapters aimed at differential and integral calculus. ... The text is accompanied by a lot of worked examples, figures and applications. Together with detailed proofs of theorems this makes the text suitable also for self-study."
