Apostol Books

  1. May 7, 2006 #1
    I've read here and on other sites that Apostol's Calculus I-III books are remarkable. Is this the general concensus? I want an extremely rigorous math book. I've been using Larson, Hostetler, and Edwards which is good, but not detailed enough for me. Apostol's books are extremely expensive. Where's the best place to buy books like this?

    Thanks for your advice.

    Apostol is very difficult. More like an analysis text than you're standard calculus text.
