### Calculus Made Easy

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

Considering how many fools can calculate, it is

surprising that it should be thought either a difficult

or a tedious task for any other fool to learn how to

master the same tricks.

Some calculus-tricks are quite easy. Some are

enormously difficult. The fools who write the textbooks

of advanced mathematics — and they are mostly

clever fools — seldom take the trouble to show you how

easy the easy calculations are. On the contrary, they

seem to desire to impress you with their tremendous

cleverness by going about it in the most difficult way.

Being myself a remarkably stupid fellow, I have

had to unteach myself the difficulties, and now beg

to present to my fellow fools the parts that are not

hard. Master these thoroughly, and the rest will

follow. What one fool can do, another can.
