Cool, looks like it could be useful to me. I'll probably be (re)taking calculus next semester.

I watched the interview (introducing the book and videos) and part of the first lecture (2 hours long!).  Although I kept missing small bits of the audio in the first lecture, what I saw seemed pretty decent to me.  I'm especially interested in the author's coverage of the process of figuring out problems -- perhaps it will hint at Polya's "How to Solve It".

I noticed that the first chapter of the book can be downloaded from the book's website if you want to get a sense of the book first-hand -- though you can also see bits of it (in lower quality) via Amazon's "Look Inside".  The book is pretty big -- over 700 pages...

Thanks for sharing this, Target!
