An unusual supplement to every calculus textbook, Misteaks and How
to Find Them before the Teacher Does is popular with students and
teachers alike. Teachers love the way it encourages students to
truly think about mathematics rather than simply plugging numbers
into equations to crank out answers, and students love the author's
straightforward, tongue-in-cheek style. The title of this
light-hearted and amusing book might well have been "Going Gray in
Elementary Calculus and How to Avoid it." Changing the metaphor,
Barry has hit the nail on the finger in hundreds of fine examples.
--Philip J. Davis, coauthor of The Mathematical Experience. "How I
wish that something like this had been available when I was a
student!" --Ralph P. Boas, former editor of The American
Mathematical Monthly. Bonus: Solution to LeWitt Puzzle
