Please make this book available also in Latvia! I'm signed up for your Coursera course and having an access to the book through phone would greatly help me in studying. Thanks!

Overall a different way to look at calculus than what is normally taught. There is a reference to FLCT II on page 18 but I cannot find that ref.

This lovely set of handmade slides allow the reader to see calculus as it should be: written by the human hand. Mathematicians teach better with blackboards than anything else, these slides are the equivalent to blackboard presentations, with a lot of information, some proofs and some very inspiring little illustrations. Like Sal Khan, Larry Gonick and Vi Hart, Ghrist understands that teaching is a human-to-human experience enhanced by the handwritten and impeded by powerpoint / beamer type slides. Congratulations on some very nice handiwork.
