Show Synopsis

Were it not for the calculus, mathematicians would have no way to describe the acceleration of a motorcycle, the effect of gravity on thrown balls and distant planets, or to prove that a man could cross a room and eventually touch the opposite wall. Just how calculus makes these things possible--and in doing so finds a correspondence between real numbers and the real world--is the subject of this dazzling book by a mathematician who writes with extraordinary clarity and stylistic brio.
