No book is perfect, and our excellent textbook is no exception. This page will grow to be a list of typos and other mistakes (mostly very minor) in Spivak's Calculus'' book (third edition). If you find anything, please let me know (electronic means preferred!), and I'll add your report. At the end of the year I plan to send this page to Spivak.

I should have started this two years ago, when I first taught using this book. I guess the few typos reported to me before October 2004 may be lost.

The format of the entries below is: (page number; date added to this list (d/m/y); credit; report).
