I have used Stewart, early transcendentals and I found it to be pretty good.

I guess it depends on how deep you want to swim. In order of "shallow" to "deep": Stewart, Spivak, Apostol.

I've only read the works of Spiavak and Stewart, so I cant speak for Apostol. I do prefer Spiavak though.

Apostol is a bit unconventional in that he introduces integration before limits and differentiation, and in a way that most people are not used to. But if that doesn't bother you, along with the Definition-Theorem-Proof format, then Apostol is a pretty good choice to learn calculus.

Haven't seen the other books.
