Well many people on these forums, including myself, like to recommend "Linear Algebra Done Right" by Axler, although it might not be appropriate for a first exposure to linear algebra. I cannot recommend any others, as I have never had another good linear algebra text.

I really like "Linear Algebra Demystified". Even though the Demystified series is usually a bunch of crap, and with terrible editing and proofreading to boot, this book was actually pretty good. He even covers Linear Algebra with complex numbers. "Linear Algebra: An Introduction" by Bronson is good too.

Try Halmos' Vector Spaces (or something close to that)
