Considering how many fools can calculate, it is surprising that it should be thought either a difficult or tedious task for any other fool to learn how to master the same tricks.

By far the best opening line for a math text ever written. Now released from copyright restrictions you can download a copy, visit the version, or read it here.

I think I'm going to use this as the text for my High School Calculus class next year and perhaps as a supplemental text for my AP Calculus students.

Thanks to Denise for the tip. ;-)
