Many of these types of materials are available for purchase in the
Wolfram Research Bookstore at http://www.wolfram.com/bookstore. 

Of particular interest in Lennart's case is the section for Calculus and
Mathematica Education in which you can find the title which Jeff
suggests, along with several others that may be suitable.

The Wolfram Research Bookstore boasts nearly 100 titles in a broad range
of subjects. I would highly recommend browsing through it when you have
a chance.
