I am going to cast my vote with Spivak. I am also definately going to second reading a book on proofing and logic first, though.

Spivak was my first experience to proofing, and the first quarter of the book made me want to throw the book across the room, until i got the hang of having to prove things (especially things that seem like they're just obvious). It turned out all right in the end: it's doable, just not recommended. I imagine it would be a lot easier to first learn to proof, then learn calculus, instead of learning both at the same time.

If you have had trig and algebra, you are capable of doing Spivak. He really does go from the ground up.
