About the book
This book is a nonconventional text laying emphasis on the WHY’s of mathematics rather that the HOW’s. It covers the study of functions of a real variable with the attempt of motivating students about the abstract concepts thereby helping overcome their aversion for abstraction.
Adequate exposure to the HOW's of the mathematics through the exercises is provided along with their answers.
