I will be doing my first course in real analysis this year and the textbooks have just been released. The recommended text is Spivak's "Calculus" as the title suggests. I have a copy of Stewart's "Calculus" and have heard that the content is very similar except that Spivak is slightly more rigorous. I am a little skeptical that Spivak (based on what I have heard) will be enough for an entire analysis course and so was thinking about getting a specialized analysis text. Would you recommend this or not? Do you think Spivak will get me through?

Thanks
