I'm looking for a book that could help me get a better grasp on calculus and its related concepts. I've been through all 3 calc courses (covered derivatives, integrations and techniques, vectors and fields and 3 dimensional applications) but i dont feel as though i've completely grasped everything involved. I'm hoping to build a more intuitive understanding if possible. I've been considering the book "Calculus: An Intuitive and Physical Approach" but have heard that it lacks in the area of proofs, which I was really hoping to come to understand. Would anyone have any recommendations for a good book to help me reach this end?

Here's the other book suggested here (and which is a good book too): http://www.amazon.com/CalculusVolO.../dp/0471000051

It is hard to recommend with only what you have told us. But it sounds as if you know some techniques and want to understand intuition and rigor. Apostol and Spivak are good for rigor, and Courant is good for both. Another book I might suggest is by Michael Comenetz, Calculus, the elements.
