Your Textbook Dollars at Work

bookJames Stewart, of Stewart’s Calculus textbook fame, has just finished building a $24 million dollar house.  It includes a professional quality concert hall which seats 150 people.  You can check out the house on the Wall Street Journal website.

My books and my house are my twin legacies. If I hadn’t commissioned this house, I’m not sure what I would spend the money on.

— James Stewart

Thanks to Michael Lugo for pointing out the article.

  1. I agree with you trey, i’m not sure if this was a big waste or not.

    Maybe now that this house is built, he won’t need to come out with another edition of Calculus for a few extra years.
