It's a standard (one of *the* standards) Calculus textbook. I do wish there were harder/"messier" problems given in the end of sections; there definitely were some. Or, alternatively, the number of nearly identical problems could be reduced (if you didn't get the first 10 easy problems, 60 more aren't going to do you much good...) ( )

Epigraph
Preface -- A great discovery solves a great problem but there is a grain of discovery in the solution of any problem. Your problem may be modest; but if it challenges your curiosity and brings into play your inventive faculties, and if you solve it by your own means, you may experience the tension and enjoy the triumph of discovery. --- George Polya

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 053439339X, Hardcover)

This edition of James Stewart's best-selling calculus book has been revised with the consistent dedication to excellence that has characterized all his books. Stewart's Calculus is successful throughout the world because he explains the material in a way that makes sense to a wide variety of readers. His explanations make ideas come alive, and his problems challenge, to reveal the beauty of calculus. Stewart's examples stand out because they are not just models for problem solving or a means of demonstrating techniques--they also encourage readers to develp an analytic view of the subject. This edition includes new problems, examples, and projects.
