Hello everyone.

I'm about to take Calc 3 next semester and am looking for a rigorous book to work with on multivariable calculus. I've gone through Spivak's "Calculus" from cover to cover and am hoping to find something with the same degree of rigor, if possible, and preferably with a solution manual. At first I considered "Calculus on manifolds" but from what I've been told it's too dense and will be better appreciated as a second exposure. I've also considered Courant & John Vol-II but having red the beginning of Vol-I, I dislike the approach the authors take, and the explanations feel somewhat more hand-wavy to me (at least compared to Spivak).

So is there any book on the subject that will be in the same vein as Spivak (and preferably with ?

Thanks to all the helpers.
