It should be mentioned that of all the circuits presented in this section, the differentiator is the one that will operate least successfully with real components. The capacitive input makes it particularly susceptible to random noise...The first sentence is correct, but the second sentence is wrong. It's not a "random noise" problem, it's a loop-stability problem. The resistor and the capacitor introduce a low-pass filter in the feedback path, which reduces the phase margin (close to, or even below, zero degrees) of the op-amp loop.
