I remember reading the preface of a Physics textbook in which the author mentions a book on Introductory Calculus in which the matter is explained in the form of an innovative conversation between a teacher and his student. I am eager to lay my hands on a copy of book as I think it is a very effective way of learning. Does anyone know what it's called?

Well, if you like manga there's The Manga Guide to Calculus :) – Adrián Barquero Apr 28 '13 at 15:54

Finally found it, myself! It was: Caluclus: Basic Concepts For High Schools by LV Tarasov (1982). Though the convrsation is not exactly between a teacher and his student but between the Author and the Reader. I can sleep peacefully today!
