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.
