    Why that specific book? Looks like a crappy one.

    Also, that book's not on the internet.

    Looks like it's part of a series I have never hear of. But please do teach yourself calculus.

    An interesting fact is that Newton is today praised as the inventor of calculus in competition with a german mathematician, and that is a controversy in itself. But the newly discovered palimpsest would suggest that Archimedes was the true inventor of the concept.

    You can always trace basic principles back to the Ancient Greeks - Archimedes didn't invent modern calculus, he just found some of the principles before Newton/Leibniz did.

    We don't really know that since the palimpsest is back engineered from and old pray book. But in my defense the antikytherian computer do tell a story that the ancient greeks knew mathematics and calculus as a concept would be within their reach of understanding. It's also amazing that ancient egyptians had knowledge of the 26.000 year old wobble of the earth to make the zodiak. And I believe Newton when he said that he stood on the shoulders of giants.
