Impressed with the WP 34S. This integral is efficiently integrated with the TanhSinh method (HP forum post). This method is particularly suitable for your function. I did a quick check with my implementation: for a specified accuracy of eps=10^4 TanhSinh only performs 27 integrand evaluations to converge to 40 exactly, or at least very close (depends on the floating point format, single/double IEEE 754 or BCD etc.) The WP 34S uses TanhSinh. That implementation can be improved though. TanhSinh is not considered a general integration method as it may perform quite poorly in certain (known) cases.
