comment Simple proof of the Binomial Theorem for $\mathbb{R}$
@ArturoMagidin I see your points, it was not me intention to come of that strongly and as a non native english person I apologize for the spelling mistakes. As for the question I was not thinking about graduate level math where the proofs are not circular (i.e. Rudin's books and the likes) but the kind of text books used for calculus in high school which (at least in Denmark) does have this problem (among many other ones such as the description of continuous functions).

comment Simple proof of the Binomial Theorem for $\mathbb{R}$
I have updated my question as I see it was unclear, I am interested in a proof of the binomial theorem with special attention to only depending on principals from calculus that does not have any circular dependencies on infinite sums (that use the binomial theorem).

comment Best Maths books for non-mathematicians
Truly amazing book (along with W Dunham). Also worth mentioning is Derbyshire's latest book Algebra "Unknown Quantity: A Real And Imaginary History of Algebra".
