This book, though not directly on calculus or ODE, will give you quite a bit of insight into what people are doing in those courses, and make them *much* easier. Eigenvalues and eigenvectors make sense after you read this book. Existence-Uniqueness theorem takes on meaning.
Okay, thank you. I will look into it.
